Happy Tuesday Everybody!! We are slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things after the New Year and after a bit of an extra week off it's time to get back into regular updates.
Today we have another New Years Eve update from Matt as he spent the evening at Knott's Berry Farm with his lovely wife Rose. Due to a bit of wet weather it was an awesome, kick back night at Knott's.

Welcome to Knott's on the last day of 2016!
Before we head into the park, let's take a look at the Knott's Marketplace.
We were asked by CA Great America to send them some pictures of Knott's Marketplace for a recent planning commission meeting. Would be awesome to see a similar Marketplace come to that park. It would be a great hit.
Amazing sandwiches and then Cinnamon Rolls!!
Remember when people used to debate online if this was an inversion or not? Good times, good times.
The Sky Cabin was still closed on NYE.
Lots of special lighting and entertainment
75 Seconds until 2017!!
Awesome fireworks show
What better way to kick off the New Year than with a Funnel Cake!!
Alright, that's gonna wrap it up for this Knott's update. We will be back at the park soon for the Knott's Pink event, be sure you check out all of that info here.
Also, the Active Fire and Police Personell free entry is back and you can find all of that info here.
Today we have our update from the always amazing "Knott's Merry Farm". This year the event is back and better than ever with a plethora of amazing shows, the always amazing food and of course everything else that makes Knott's Berry Farm one of the best theme parks in the country.
Unfortunately on the day we visited it was a bit rainy so we opted to not ruin the DSLR so these are all iPhone pics, but we will be back soon and will get more pictures and see more of the shows.

Welcome to Knott's Merry Farm!!
The tree looks great in it's new location where the stage used to be.
It was my daughters boyfriends first visit to Knott's (yes, ever) so we had to have some fun with Sad Eye Joe, who was pretty surprised it was his first visit too.
Which obviously meant experiencing some of the classic Knott's attractions (shucks). ;)
Christmas on the Calico Railroad is always fun
Love the cold rainy weather
We also had to check out Santa, who was on a break the first time we stopped by. You can get lots of yummy snacks too that were left behind by those Red Barn folks. ;)
Brief interlude for a construction update
Ooooooh ... Aaaaaaah ... New Boardwalk BBQ coming in 2017.
No trip to Knott's Merry Farm is complete without seeing "Merry Christmas, Snoopy" ... On Ice.
Feel free to check out the slide show from this amazing performance. It gets better every year.
Unfortunately due to the rain "It's the Merriest Christmas Charlie Brown" wasn't showing that night. We'll be back soon to check it out.
Rain at Knott's means that pretty much every ride was shut down, but it was awesome just walking around and enjoying the park. Would have made for some nice DSLR pics if I wanted to get it wet. ;)
We checked out the caves in Camp Snoopy, I remember them being bigger. ;)
Back in Ghost Town, all the lights are on. (we sadly missed the snow too)
SANTA!! I KNOW HIM!!
Love the tree, it really fits in this spot.
Thanks to Knott's for having us out for Merry Farm, we will be back at some point over the next two weekends for more holiday fun, more shows, better pics, and obviously more food.
