This past Saturday was the opening day of the Boysenberry Festival so we were of course out at Knott's to partake in all the boysenberry goodness.
It was a pretty busy day at the park since along with media day for the festival it was a Saturday, the start of Spring Break and there was some kind of Cheerleader event going on.
Even with the crowds we had an amazing time at the park as always.

Welcome to Knott's Berry Farm!!
Knott's always puts on great media events
Did you know that Knott's now has park-wide free WiFi? We used it all day on Saturday and even with the large crowds had no issues at all.
We'll start off the update with a quick look at Ghostrider. We also have a quick video update below.
Even from outside the park you can see the difference between the old and new wood.
Not too many changes from our tours a few weeks ago. If you missed that update you can see it here.
Inside the park, not a whole lot has changed since our tour a few weeks ago.
As you may have heard last week the opening has been pushed back from Memorial Weekend until sometime in June. As soon as we get a specific date we will let you know.
The MCBR-less turnaround.
Even though it was a Saturday they were still working on the ride to get it ready.
You can see below they are starting to put the lighting back on the pre-lift.
The pan for gold is looking great and it will be nice to see this back at the front of the park.
But of course the main reason for our visit was the Boysenberry Festival.
If you missed our preview of the festival from last week be sure to check it out here.
Panna Cotta and Cannoli
The Alligator Bites were back this year. And we have to say, these were great the first year but the last two years they just haven't done it for us. I think it's time for them to retire this item after this year.
Of course, no Boysenberry Festival is complete without yummy beer and wine. For a real tasty treat have them mix the Boysenberry Beer with the Berry Cider. Very refreshing.
Also new this year the Cinnamon Chips with Boysenberry Dip. Really nice treat.
Hot Dog with Boysenberry Relish. You can get it on the side too.
The Fun Stick and Boysenberry Flautas.
The Boysenberry Festival runs through April 3 so be sure you check it out. It's a lot of fun.
The Calico Saloon also reopened from it's refurb and it looks absolutely fantastic!!!
We'll get back in with the good camera soon to get some better pictures to share.
So much more room up here now which is awesome.
The new chandelier's look great!!!
Just a couple of quick notes:
Anybody know what's up with the crane backstage? This was from the Mystery Lodge line.
Love spending the evening in Ghost Town
Until our next Knott's update ... moo.
