Knott’s Merry Farm Invites Everyone to “a Charlie Brown Christmas”

Buena Park, California, USA — Knott’s Berry Farm is transformed into Knott’s Merry Farm for the season and celebrates “A Charlie Brown Christmas” with entertainment, decorations including a 65 foot tall Christmas tree, and a colorful Christmas parade running through December 30, 2010.

“A Peanuts’ Holiday Parade” offers seven elaborately themed floats featuring the Peanuts Gang and accompanied by students from Orange County Song and Dance Company. Children and adults alike will be able to get into the holiday spirit along with CHARLIE BROWN, LUCY, LINUS, SALLY, SCHROEDER and of course SNOOPY, as they ready for the holidays.

Also in the spirit of the season, Knott’s Merry Farm is proud to present the ice spectacular, “It’s Christmas, Snoopy!” The show, performed in the 2,100-seat Charles M. Schulz Theatre, is hosted by the famous skating Beagle and features Knott’s ensemble skaters, dazzling sets, colorful costumes and plenty of surprises.

Knott’s 1880s Ghost Town is transformed into Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village. The show and parade are included with regular Park admission and available to Christmas Crafts Village guests for a nominal additional charge. Adding to the unique Village atmosphere are live performances of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and O’Henry’s “A Gift of the Magi” in the Bird Cage Theatre.

Elf Mountain Christmas is also back. The world famous Timber Mountain Log Ride has once again been transformed this holiday season giving guests an up-close and-personal view into the world of Santa’s Elves. This attraction will remain open until Jan. 2, 2011.

Guests can also experience the wonder of “Snoopy’s Christmas Light Spectacular,” and a visit with Santa in Santa’s Toy Barn, and indulge in Knott’s holiday treats. “Snoopy’s Calico Christmas Tree Lighting” takes place each evening in Calico Square, with the Peanuts characters in a song-and-dance show complete with carolers and a Christmas sing-along. The Peanuts gang is also featured in their very own live musical show, “Winter Wonderland” shown daily in Camp Snoopy.

Merry Farm guests can combine their holiday treats with Knott’s blockbuster rides. The legendary GhostRider®, the ultimate wooden sleigh ride; 30-story Supreme Scream®, the world’s tallest descending thrill ride; Silver Bullet, the longest and tallest suspended coaster in the West and Knott’s newest addition, Pony Express, all deliver a thrill this holiday season.

Knott’s opens daily at 10 a.m. The park closes Dec. 25 to allow its employees to spend Christmas with their families.
