Growing up in San Diego, I got to visit all of the local Southern California amusement parks a lot. My grandpa lived in Orange County, so we'd go stay with him and visit our favorite parks several times a year (at least that's what it felt like as a kid!).
One of our favorite parks to visit was Knott's Berry Farm, located in Buena Park, CA. It was only about 5 minutes from my Grandpa's house so it was perfect, and it was always a lot of fun.
If you haven't been to Knott's Berry Farm before, then you might not know that every year, they transform the park into Knott's Merry Farm for the holidays. I have never had the pleasure of visiting during this time, but I have always wanted to. And I'm super excited that – thanks to GigaSavvy – I'll get to take my girls this year! They are going to have so much fun.
There is a ton of stuff to do at Knott's Merry Farm to ring in the holiday season.
See the ice show, Merry Christmas, Snoopy!
Visit Santa’s Christmas Cabin, where your can meet Santa and savor Knott’s world famous holiday treats.
Take a trip back in time and celebrate Christmas in the Old West town of Calico with a trip aboard the Calico Railroad for Christmas on Engine 41.
Check out the all-new show, Christmas Time is Here, Charlie Brown, featuring a delightful mash up of some of your favorite holiday songs with a cheerful and heartwarming dose of the Peanuts gang.
Join Snoopy as he lights up the night in the Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting show.
Take a stroll through Ghost Town where snow gently falls while thousands of sparkling lights dance to the beat of familiar holiday music.
And of course you can check out many of the regular attractions as well!
