Deck the Halls at Knott's Merry Farm!

My family was invited to Knott's Berry Farm for a special event to preview this year's Holiday line-up of shows and festivities. Knott's Merry Farm has long been a holiday tradition for so many So Cal residents. This was my family's first time celebrating the holidays with Knott's Merry Farm and I couldn't have asked for a more cheerful and joyous day!

We attended a private Holiday reception at the Mystery Lodge where we were greeted by Santa & Mrs. Claus! My kids just about lost it! Then, as if Mr. & Mrs. Claus weren't enough of a wonderful surprise, we received cuddly hugs from Santa Snoopy!!! It was AWESOME! We all sat down and enjoyed some of Knott's Berry Farm's classic Boysenberry pie along with other yummy desserts. My kids had a blast decorating gingerbread cookies and sugar cookies shaped like Snoopy's head. We had plenty of hot chocolate to keep us warm while we took in all of the holiday decor and told Santa what we all wanted for Christmas!
Knott's is also hosting the Peanuts' Holiday Parade which includes themed floats featuring the entire Peanuts Gang as well as students from the Orange County Song and Dance Company. Check out my video of the Peanuts' Holiday Parade below:


We spent the remainder of our evening in Camp Snoopy! My kids and hubby were on Joe Cool's Gr8 Sk8 when all the holiday lights lit the night sky and sounds of classic holiday music filled the air. They all were cheering and so excited to check out the rest of Camp Snoopy. Snow flakes were dancing on the ground, trees were covered in spiralling lights, there was holiday cheer as far as the eyes could see. I found myself singing along to just about every song I heard. My kids got on every single ride and wore themselves out. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
The world famous Bird Cage Theater located in Ghost Town is hosting heartwarming presentations of the holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol" and also "The Gift of the Magi". These shows are scheduled to run from Nov. 24, 2011 to Jan. 1, 2012. No holiday would be complete without the ice spectacular, "It's Christmas, Snoopy!". The show is performed in the Charles M. Schulz Theatre and includes that famous skating Beagle, Knott’s ensemble skaters, dazzling sets, colorful costumes and plenty of surprises. The ice show is included with regular Park admission. Nov. 24- 27, Dec. 2-4, 9-11, 16 – 20, 22 – 24, 26 & 27, 29 – 31 & Jan. 1, 2012.

Happy Holidays!
