Starting today April 12 at 10 a.m. Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park, California will be celebrating the history of this popular attraction at the ‘Ghost Town Boysenberry Festival’. The festival, which will run until 9 p.m. on April 27, honors the berry that started it all, when Cordelia Knott opened her roadside “Boysenberry stand”, which will be recreated during the festival selling boysenberry plants.

From this humble beginning Walter and Cordelia Knott went on to create an amusement park that continues to the present time, now being re-lived for a more modern generation of visitors, During the festival, inside the ‘Wilderness Dance Hall’ there will be a variety of boysenberry gourmet foods and wine; just outside will be sculpted topiaries providing shade; and along the streets of ‘Ghost Town’ open-air barbeques stands will be cooking mouthwatering ribs, chicken and other charbroiled treats smothered in boysenberry glaze.

Among the other things of interest, all with a boysenberry theme, will be wares from local artisans, western themed games, a pie eating contest made from boysenberries, and a special boysenberry Festival prize.

Guests can enjoy the music of the ‘Peanuts party’, nightly fun with the ‘Bloomination Dance party’. the kids can take part in the “Easter Beagle’s Enormous Egg hunt’, as well as all the fun that Knotts Berry Farm offers every day they are open.

Located at 8039 Beach Blvd. in Buena Park, just south of the 91 and 5 freeways , the park is open daily from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. Tickets can be bought in advance online.
