Christmas Time is one of the best time of year to visit Knott's Berry Farm because it turns into a magical place called Knott’s Merry Farm. With the Halloween decorations gone, now replaced by thousands of Christmas lights, Knott’s Merry Farm is sure to put you in the best holiday spirit.
Thank you Knott's Berry Farm for the invite to your media night to be able to experience the Holiday event and be able to write this post.
My first favorite thing at Knott’s Merry Farm is all of the pretty lights that you will see when walking around. There are thousands of lights everywhere in the spirit of this holiday season. There is not one place in the park that is not decorated with beautiful lights that will have your heart wanting Christmas to come sooner.
Knott’s Merry Farm also features a Christmas Crafts Village where artists from all over come and set up beautiful booths selling all of their products. From pretty Christmas ornaments to hats of all shapes and sizes, Knott’s Merry Farm has it all in their artist village. The Christmas Crafts Village is set up throughout GhostTown so you can browse all the booths and go on all your favorite rides at the same time!
Since it is Christmas Time, you can't leave the park without seeing the big man himself. Ready to take pictures with you is Santa in Santa's Christmas Cabin located in the Wilderness Dance Hall right next to the famous Pony Express attraction. You can take your very own picture with Santa and munch on some Holiday Snacks that are available for purchase, such as Cookies and eggnog or some delicious hot chocolate in a Knott’s Merry Farm themes cup.
You can't forget about the wonderful food that Knott's has to offer this holiday season. My personal favorites were the pumpkin milkshake and holiday elote. Throughout the park, they so many different savory and sweet foods to provide guests with for the holiday season.
Lastly, Knott’s Merry Farm has some fantastic shows for all guests to watch and enjoy. Throughout the night they have the fantastic Snow and Glow experience in Ghost Town where you can watch it snow in Southern California with Christmas music playing in the streets. Knotts Merry Farm also has, It's the Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown, featuring all the Peanuts Gang and some classic holiday songs at the Calico Mine Stage.
While we were at Knott’s Merry Farm, we had the privilege of watching the astonishing Tree Lighting Ceremony in honor of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Orange County. We watched as Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang brought the tree to life with two children from the Boys and Girls Clubs. We also listened to the beautiful Christmas Carolers that will be roaming throughout the park this holiday season.
Knott's Merry Farm is here until January 6th, 2019 and has already begun. Don't forget to bring your whole family to the park to celebrate this year spectacular holiday season.
