Celebrate the Christmas Season at Knott’s Merry Farm

Thank you Knott’s Berry Farm for inviting us to attend Knott’s Merry Farm Media Day yesterday.  We had a great time getting into the holiday spirit while visiting the park.

Knott's Merry Farm 2016

Knott’s Merry Farm will be open from November 19, 2016 through January 8, 2017. Once you walk through the gates you will feel like you escaped into a small town country Christmas.  You will be able to do some holiday shopping in the Christmas Crafts Village.  We saw apron booths, carved wood, blown glass, wood signs and so much more. There is something to be found for everyone on your list.

There are twinkling lights and holiday décor throughout the park to get you in the festive mood.  You won’t want to miss the Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony in Calico Park.

Be sure to stop by Santa’s Christmas Cabin in the Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town to have a special visit with Santa Claus.

Treat yourself to one-of-kind seasonal treats like Santa’s freshly-baked cookies, mouthwatering pastries, exquisite chocolate dipped cheesecake on a stick, seasonal craft beers, gourmet hot chocolate with marshmallows and hot spiced holiday wine, plus much more.

We also watched Engine No. 41 depart.

As we left for the day, we said to one another that even though we didn’t go on a single ride while we were there, we genuinely enjoyed ourselves seeing the transformation to a merry place to visit in Southern California.

We are already making plans to return soon so that we could see the It’s the Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown, Calico Tree Lighting ceremony and the Snow and Glow in Ghost Town.
