Celebrate the joy of the holidays now through January 6th at Knotts Merry Farm. Families will love creating new memories with classic shows like the Snoopy Ice Show – Merry Christmas Snoopy staring the Peanuts gang, and It’s the Merriest Christmas Show Ever Charlie Brown. Stroll through the merry streets of Calico for unique seasonal treats, traditional live Christmas Carolers, a Christmas Crafts Village, an enchanting Snow and Glow show with nightly falling snow, and so much more.
The Mayor of Calico, Snoopy and The Peanuts Gang The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern California and special guest, Santa Claus, kicked off the holiday celebration with a beautiful tree lighting.
When I arrived at the park, the first thing I noticed was the decorations. This year Knott’s has the largest Christmas display ever with a full park transformation of all new beautiful decor. It’s now a festively quaint town of the past. Along the streets of Calico, we shopped the many vendors in Christmas Crafts Village.
We followed our noses along the streets of Calico, discovering unique seasonal treats that can’t be found anywhere else. We stopped and listened the sweet melodies of traditional live Christmas Carolers, and began to sing along with them. I especially enjoy browsing through Christmas crafts village, finding unique items and personalized gift ideas.
While families enjoy rides throughout the park for kids of all ages, live holiday shows add to the magic of the Knott’s Merry Farm Experience. It’s The Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown at the Calico Mine Stage features the Peanuts Gang in a fun holiday musical.
A seasonal tradition, Snoopy’s live entertainment ice show, “Merry Christmas, Snoopy!” starring the Peanuts Gang and a cast of world-class ice skaters. In this whimsical show, Snoopy enjoys all of the best parts of the season including trimming the Christmas tree, awaiting Santa’s arrival, and attending the Christmas Ball! Showing select dates, November 16, 2018 – January 6, 2019 at the Charles M. Schultz Theatre.
For additional live seasonal performances, take the littles to Camp Snoopy to see, A Peanuts Guide to Christmas, performing daily at the Camp Snoopy Theater. The Peanuts Gang offer their take and unique wisdom on surviving the holidays, while singing you a mashup of their favorite holiday tunes.
Visit Ghost Town to step inside the historic Bird Cage Theatre where Knott’s melodrama company brings to life Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and O. Henry’s A Gift of the Magi on select dates.
For the holidays, Knott’s Berry Farm offers delicious bites that are scattered throughout the park. Berenice Santillian, the Knott’s Berry Farm Food and Beverage representative shares all of the tasty bites and where to find them:
Knott’s Berry Farm also offers a festive line of merchandise for all ages. From adorable shirts, sweatshirts, flannels and hats. For holiday gift ideas, they have collectors pins, plush, lanyards, sweet treats and glowing bracelets. I think my favorite is the adorable lantern that flickers in tune with the Christmas music in Ghost Town, in sync with all of the mini lanterns in the park.
As the night falls on Ghost Town, head on over to the Calico Stage to enjoy the nightly tree lighting and a little later, the town twinkles brightly to the beat of holiday songs as snow gently falls. With the nightly Snow and Glow, everyone can experience the magic of the holidays as the town is covered with snow, a sight that can’t be missed.
