Can you believe it’s going to be November in a week?
The year is flying by and the holiday season is here! One of our favorite yearly traditions is a visit to Knott’s Merry Farm. A Southern California Holiday Tradition since 1985, Knott’s Berry Farm’s seasonal event Knott’s Merry Farm celebrates the Christmas season November 22 through January 4, 2015. The holiday event includes park-wide lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food, and a shopping wonderland filled with local artisans.
Knott’s Berry Farm’s culinary elves have created delicious festive treats including Santa’s homemade cookies, sundae bar, decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings, and winter wine and craft beer tastings. Savor the ultimate comfort foods with Knott’s world famous desserts, including fresh made-to-order Maple Lollipops, churros from the Churro Factory, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men in the Farm Bakery, as well as the legendary cooking at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant.
Introduced in 2013, the Ghost Town and Calico Railroad celebrate Christmas on Engine 41.
Climb aboard a vintage rail car and meet an ever-changing group of Ghost Town residents eager to share their Christmas plans and songs with you. Ghost Town also celebrates of the sounds of the season with its very own Dickensian vocal quartet, Calico Carolers and interactive country Christmas blue grass quartet, the Ghost Town Miners.
No visit to Knott’s Merry Farm is complete without catching a performance by the world famous beagle, Snoopy as he performs a brand new ice spectacular, Merry Christmas, Snoopy! inside of the 2,100 Charles M. Schulz Theatre.
Santa’s Christmas Cabin
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without visiting Santa Claus. The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town becomes home to Santa’s Christmas Cabin for the holiday season. Here, the young and the young at heart can share their wish lists with jolly Santa Claus and take home a picture of the occasion. Here, guests can also indulge in holiday delights such as Decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings, Santa’s homemade cookies Hot fudge sundae bar, Winter wine and craft beer tastings paired with fresh fruit, cheese and more! Last year they even had vegan goodies!
Over in Camp Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus and Lucy invite you to dance, sing and join in on the holiday fun in the Camp Snoopy Theatre.
Christmas Crafts Village
Relax and unwind in Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village as it transforms Ghost Town into a shopping wonderland filled with dozens of local artists and artisans selling their unique wares including a chainsaw sculptor and glass blower. Entrance to the Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village is free Monday through Thursday and is included daily with theme park admission.
Knott’s 2015 Season Pass is now available and would make an awesome gift this holiday season!
They also just announced a the All Season Dining Plan to your 2015 Season Pass for only 9 easy payments of $11. You have to check out this one more because it’s the greatest theme park deal out there. We are planning on buying this one as Christmas presents for our family this year. That’s a year of food and fun and I can’t think of anything that is this cool!
