Happy Wednesday Afternoon Everybody!! We don't usually like to do two updates in the same day, but we've got something SUPER SPECIAL for tomorrow morning, that you're definitely not going to want to miss.
On my way home from Disneyland last Saturday I had to stop and get the Chicken Pin. Because, well, look at it (below). So of course I headed into the park to do a lap.

All Hail Chicken Boo!!
It was the second to last day of the Peanut's Festival. We're now in Diet Knott's until the Boysenberry Festival.
Just love Knott's at night
So ready for this!! Get in mah' belly!!
Work Continues on the all new Bear'y Tales
The walls extend pretty far out
Told ya it was going to be a quick update!! We'll be at Knott's for the opening of the Boysenberry Festival!
This past Friday it was time for our first Holiday event of 2019, Knott's Merry Farm.
After a 3 1/2 hour drive (gotta love weeknight traffic in SoCal) we made it to the park and were ready to have a merry time.

Welcome to Knott's Merry Farm
The projection also snows
Our first stop was the ice show as there was only 1 showing for the rest of the evening when we arrived.
This is always a favorite.
Shockingly enough, we actually got some decent pics of the show.
We've put them in a slideshow below. Sadly no video was allowed at the show.
No more pumpkin, but lots of pretty lights on the fountain.
Absolutely love this tree above the surf shop
As well as the big bulbs at coasters
All of the ride entries got huge wreaths. And because the park was not busy at all, we literally walked on every ride we wanted to.
Oddly, we found the decorations in Camp Snoopy to be rather minimal
Ghost Town is always one of our favorite places during Merry Farm. The Crafts fair is always fun.
And of course the ever-popular Snow and Glow is back.
If you like the smell of cookies, well, this is the place!!
Also home to the cookie shots, which are seriously amazing.
Forget that other Yoda, it's all about Wooden Yoda.
During our media reception, we got to take a look at some of the amazing food and merchandise available.
One of the new shows this year for Knott's Merry Farm is "Home for the Holidays".
It's a great holiday sing-along that features all the singers at the farm.
Literally all of them. =)
Alright everybody, that wraps it up for our coverage of the opening weekend of Knott's Merry Farm. We will most definitely be back.
You can find out more information about Knott's Merry Farm 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. =)
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.
