This past weekend we made our return to Knott's Merry Farm to check out more of the holiday fun we missed on opening day which included seeing the always awesome Merry Christmas Snoopy, more food and Snow and Glow. We also checked out the progress on the Xcelerator re-paint which is coming along nicely.
Enjoy the update!

Last Friday we headed out to Knott's Merry Farm to check out the opening day of this years event.
After seeing a lot of pictures from the Passholder preview night on Thursday, with a LOT of people, we were worried the event would be even more busy for the opening day. It was in fact a very pleasant day. I was there a few hours in the afternoon and then back in the evening after the Legoland Tree Lighting (click the link to check out that update).
I was able to try some yummy food and see some of the amazing entertainment at this years event. I saved a few things until we go back to the event so look for another Merry Farm update from us in a few weeks.
Let's head in and have some fun!

Welcome back to Knott's Merry Farm! It's great to be back!
Our first Merry Farm treat was the Turkey Poutine Tots. They were decent, could have used some more gravy and perhaps something sweet/tart like Cranberry Sauce as well.
The Holiday Chicken Waffle Taco was very tasty! Wish the Waffle itself would have been a bit crispier, like an actual taco shell, but that was minor. Would eat again!
Lots of cute and fun merchandise throughout the park!
And some great decorations/photo ops
Xcelerator is getting a well needed paint job!
Missed K-NOT radio every time I walked by here.
Is Whiplash ever coming back? It's not even listed on the closed attractions outside the park.
HangTime is back!
There is a LOT of really great merchandise, so we figured it would be better if we put it in a slide show.
The Factory Store got a really great new sign. We love it!
The carolers are so great!
The Saloon looks great as always!
I got the Santa's Little Helper as it was the only drink that didn't have Vodka. I don't do Vodka.
Lots of great characters in the park
The "worst thing ever" cashless machines. It's ok everybody. You'll get used to it.
Traffic cooperated coming back from the Legoland Tree Lighting and I was able to enjoy a couple of hours of Merry Farm at night.
It looks so great I don't even miss the fog. That much. =)
Home For The Holidays is such a fun show, a bit cheesy in parts, but pure holiday fun! Not to be missed!
Needed the night version of this shot. =)
Santa's Cabin is back and is always a highlight for food and entertainment
The Sticky Toffee Pudding was amazing, will definitely be getting this again!
Camp Snoopy at night always looks so great!
Thanks for checking out our Merry Farm update! Our plans are to be back the first weekend in December, so look for a lot more Merry Farm fun soon!
Last week we were invited out to check out the Taste of Merry Farm at Knott's Berry Farm. This was actually our first visit to the park since leap day as we hadn't been able to make it to any of the other "Taste" events.
It was great being back out at the park, trying some food and just walking around one of our favorite places.
I will admit, it felt kind of weird, but overall the park has done a great job of making the best out of a bad situation. Let's head in!

Hi Knott's!! We've missed you!!
You can also check out our video walk-through of the event
It was a beautiful day
First treat of the day were the fried green beans and tater-tot thing. The green beans were actually not very warm which was weird as the park had just opened. But the Tots were great!!
Next up was the Cranberry Chocolate Tart and a Boysenberry Smoothie. The Tart was way too sweet for me, but the Smoothie was fantastic. I hope it stays on the menu somewhere.
Love the new look of the Schulz Theater
Lots of new stuff to look at over here
Lots of holiday goodies in the gallery & gifts shop
Nice touch with the Hangtime car
For the coaster nerds out there
This looks fantastic!!
If there was a Rose Parade in 2021 I could see this driving the parade route
Let's head over to the Boardwalk
Mashed Potatoes. Good. Cranberry Sauce. Good. Stuffing. Good. Chicken Strips. Good. Jack and Coke Frosty. Gooooood!!
Calico Square looked fantastic of course
BBQ Pork Mac and Cheese and a Boysenberry Beer
Last up is Camp Snoopy
A couple of selfies
Love the decorations over here
Especially the Penguins!!
If you are so inclined, Mask Up and head to Knott's for the Taste of Merry Farm.
