Last weekend we were invited out for the second year of the Knott's Peanut's Celebration.
In it's second year there are more shows, more treats and more fun around every corner.
Let's check it out!!

Welcome to the Peanut's Celebration!!
Some pretty amazing photo ops at the front of the park
There are a couple of things Knott's has been stepping up the past few years, one of them is the Merchandise.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not a huge "theme park shirt" person (other than Halloween stuff), but I really love some of this merch.
The other thing they've stepped up the last few years is the food. Let's take a look at some of the great treats for the Peanut's Celebration.
Lots of fun with the Peanut's Characters all over the park
Pig Pen is back!!
Another of the new things this year is the Woodstock's Birds-Eye View. Check out a POV!!
Love all of these great signs around Camp Snoopy
It's somebody's birthday, or a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (the best Charlie Brown special, don't @ us)
So we'll be the first to admit, most of the shows at Peanut's Celebration aren't really made for us, but we thought this show was pretty fun.
Some video of the show and highlights of the entire Celebration
We of course had to take a couple of minutes to check out the progress on the rapids
Flags in the ground, Hyper confirmed!! (some people on Twitter didn't get the joke)
Last year the Sketch School had Peanut's specials showing between Show Times, but sadly not this year.
We also managed to get a new POV of the Calico Mine Ride since we had the cart almost to ourselves. One of the best rides at the park, or anywhere for that matter.
Thanks Knott's for having us out, we had an absolute blast as always.
Knott's Peanut's Celebration runs through March 10th. Check out all of the info about the event here!
Last weekend we headed back out to Knott's Merry Farm for more holiday fun, to try some more of the treats and to finally see the Snoopy on Ice Show.
We of course took a look at the construction progress of Calico River Rapids.

Welcome back to Knott's Merry Farm!!
A nice housewarming gift for some members of Team Park Journey
Let's check out what's up with Calico River Rapids
Not much over here yet
We don't think over here either
We're sure work is going on, but we can't see it yet.
One thing we are hoping for are new rafts. Or at the very least, new seat belts.
Hey there HangTime
Now that's a wreath
Let's go check out the ice show. Easily the most popular show at the park.
Merry Christmas Snoopy
The show is always a favorite of ours, but for some reason about 10 minutes into the show it stopped suddenly. There was never an announcement that it was cancelled and we ended up leaving after about 15 minutes.
But what we saw was fantastic of course.
Hey Christmas Tree
Check out our video of the tree lighting ceremony from Sunday
We had another great day at Knott's, we didn't get to try some of the food we wanted to. We may have to go back after Xmas to try the rest.
The Holiday Season is here, and last night we were out at Knott's Merry Farm for our first holiday event of the season.
It's another amazing year at Merry Farm, lots of great new things to see, holiday food and the parks merchandise game continues to improve. Let's head in and see!!

Welcome to Knott's Merry Farm!!
Sure, it's only November, and I'm usually a Grinch when it comes to Holiday stuff so early in the year. But as I said on our social media during the event, I didn't seem to mind this year. There's been so much bad stuff going on lately that a bit of Holiday Cheer was exactly what we needed. We hope you feel the same.
No fog, but lots of pretty lights.
No more Dark Ride for 2018. Maybe next year they should have a holiday overlay to the Dark Ride for Merry Farm? =)
Lots of great new decorations in The Boardwalk
Obligatory construction update
Really loved the decorations in Fiesta Village
Be sure to check out our video from our visit featuring Snow and Glow and more around the park. We'll cover the shows the next time we visit.
They also had a great opening night tree lighting ceremony.
The park truly does look amazing all times of the year, but especially during Merry Farm
Camp Snoopy was very colorful
These swans got stuck
Santa's Christmas Cabin is back where you can try a variety of holiday treats, and of course, hang out with the big guy.
Speaking of Santa's Cabin ... let's check out some of the food
Elote is always awesome
This was interesting. I'm not a fan of sweet potato so I didn't enjoy it as much as others did.
If you get one treat at Knott's Merry Farm, make it this. I need this recipe.
Yule log. Not a log, I don't have a log. If I had a log not in the sense that you think I said I did.
Some awesome Merry Farm merch available this year as well. May have to expand my closet beyond Halloween shirts. =)
Thanks for checking out our Knotts Merry Farm Update. We wish you all the best.
Don't forget, if you get cold, be sure to put your lamb over your shoulders. =)
