The holiday spirit is alive and in full swing at Knott's Berry Farm, in fact Knott's has completely transformed into the merriest place around- Knott's Merry Farm! My family and I were lucky enough to attend for the 3rd year and this time with a little bit of surprise SoCal rain. Knott's Merry Farm is open now through January 8, 2017. Keep reading to hear about some of the fun stuff you can expect.
Because my littles were so little when we first started going to Knott's, we always gravitated towards Camp Snoopy. But after they got to experience the live characters walking around Ghost Town this past Summer, they couldn't wait to check out what Ghost Town had in store for the holidays. One of my favorite things about Merry Farm is the addition of the Christmas Crafts Village. You can get some holiday shopping done or just take a look, either way the local artisans and their unique handmade gifts are beautiful. If you get the chance, check out the glass blowing demonstrations, it's such a cool art form.
Santa's Christmas Cabin. Here you can find delicious special holiday treats like cookies and milk, eggnog, warm candied nuts, a hot chocolate station and coffee.
As much as we love the goodies, my favorite part of Santa's Christmas Cabin, is taking our annual photo with Santa! You can take your own photo with your phone, or pay a small fee to have one printed out and framed to take home.
Here are my girls at the hot chocolate station. They were able to add marshmallows, whipped cream and peppermint sprinkles. How cute is the Snoopy cup?
You can catch the tree lighting ceremony every night at 5 pm in Calico Park. This is just the kick off of the nighttime holiday fun, make sure to wander the streets of Ghost Town at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 for the falling Snow and Glow- it's magical.
A big part of the holiday memories made at Knott's Merry Farm is at the shows. My favorite is the Merry Christmas, Snoopy! Ice Show. I love all of the songs, watching Snoopy skate, Linus' speech and the falling snow. Oh and what better time for the kids to hear the classic story of The Gift of the Magi? In between rides and food, Knott's gives you the chance to make some holiday memories too.
