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!
