Knott’s #MerryFarm Returns

Never has there been so much to see and do during the holiday season at Knott’s Merry Farm, now through January 8th! I feel like Knott’s was made for this time of the year. Ghost Town is magical during Christmas.

Knott's Merry Farm

My husband has fond memories of Knott’s, especially during Christmastime. When he was young, his family would come to the park Sunday mornings. They would enjoy the log ride, mine train and have a funnel cake. It’s wonderful to be able to make similar memories with our children.
