The family-friendly daytime Halloween event, Knott’s Spooky Farm, returns starting Sept. 28 for spooky good times at Knott’s Berry Farm.
Families with little ghouls ages 3-11 can celebrate the spooky season as the park is transformed with themed decorations and fun. There will be Halloween-themed activities including trick-or-treating, new shows, pumpkin decorating, and the Peanuts Costume Contest. The event will take place on weekends from Sept. 28 – Oct. 27 and Halloween Day.
In Camp Snoopy and Calico Park, guests can find Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang celebrating Halloween in their costumes as they pose for meet & greets and photo encounters. Kids ages 3-11 can take part in the expanding trick-or-treating offering through Ghost Town’s Main Street and Schoolhouse Road.
During trick-or-treating, kids can interact with spooky-yet-friendly shopkeepers and show off their Halloween costumes. In Ghost Town, Stanley Scarecrow has opened the Livery Stable for guests of all ages to meet the Creepy Critters of Calico.
Calico Park will transform into a pumpkin patch, where families can take part in fun photo-ops, browse crafters and watch strolling magicians. Miniature pumpkins and Halloween cookies will be available for decorating at a small fee. Linus will be out and about to help younger guests find the perfect pumpkin. The Spooky Story Time at the Birdcage Theatre will be the home of semi-haunting tales that are perfect for kids. Guests might even catch a glimpse of the haunted calliope player.
At Camp Snoopy, families can climb aboard the Grand Sierra Railroad and take A Trip to Camp Spooky as riders travel with the Peanuts Gang and see 2D and 3D Halloween-themed characters and effects along the way.
At the Camp Snoopy Theatre, younger guests are encouraged to enter the Peanuts Costume Contest and take part in the Peanuts Dance Party afterward. In addition, families can watch the Peanuts in “The Monsters are Coming, Charlie Brown,” where they can sing and dance along to classic Halloween songs.
Once again, the Timber Mountain Log Ride will be transformed to celebrate the Halloween Hootenanny, as the mysterious creatures of Timber Mountain join the citizens to honor the season.
On the ride, guests will pass by the Calico Coffin Creeper Band, the town’s green witch and splash down Skull Mountain through a maze of jack-o-lanterns. The ride will also feature an original song performed by Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies.
