Today we're back with more holiday fun, this time at Knott's Merry Farm. There is so much packed into a day at the Farm that you may even need two days just to see it all, which is amazing.

During our visit of about 10 hours we spent time enjoying Ghost Town, a few of the shows, relaxing in Santa's Cabin and only rode 1 actual ride (Christmas on Engine 41) and we still didn't manage to see everything. There's simply that much to do.
The Chicken Dinner Restaurant, which is undergoing some major changes over the next few months

Engine 41 is all decked out for the holidays.
Be sure to get a seat inside one of the cars, we sat on the outside and there really wasn't much that was "Christmas" about it.

The Christmas Snoopy on Ice show is back and is absolutely fantastic as always. This is always a crowd pleaser.

The Calico Saloon show, always a treat and great fun.
The Christmas show is pretty much a variation on the normal show, but still great fun.

The Tree Lighting show is a bit long, but the crowd seemed to enjoy it and we certainly aren't the target demographic for this. We kept waiting for the Hangman, err, hang person, err, Shannon to show up. =)
Knott's looks beautiful all the time, but nighttime during the holidays really brings out the beauty in this park.
