Take a trip to Knott's Berry Farm now, and you’ll find it’s very merry.
This is the season that the 160-acre theme park transforms into a nostalgic holiday wonderland; yet, at the same time, those thrill rides and roller coasters still get the adrenaline pumping.
With so many amusements and adventures, plan on arriving early and leaving late.
Top-notch live entertainment adds specialness to Knott's at this time of year. Besides the theatrical performances at the Birdcage Theatre, there are strolling carolers, a holiday ice show and a traditional tree lighting in Calico Square.
Consistent with the Western Heritage theme, there’s a “Wild West Stunt Show”, as well as a show featuring Native American dancers. The Ghost Town Miners, the premier bluegrass band that had a ten-year stint at Disney’s California Adventure until last year, now keeps patrons’ hands clappin’ and feet stompin’ in Knott's Ghost Town.
Add to this line-up demonstrations by glass blowers and woodcarvers, and there’s a good chance you might miss something.
If you do, just remember, there’s always tomorrow. That’s when a season pass makes a lot of sense.
Then too, in the spirit of giving, through two special promotions, Knott's Berry Farm generously offers free admission to military personnel, as well as fire and police personnel. Military Tribute Days and Fire and Police Recognition Days continue through January 5, 2014 and January 31, 2014, respectively.
No wonder they call it Knott's Merry Farm!
