Entertainment Show Guide for Knott’s Merry Farm!

There is a lot to see and do this time of year in Southern California, and I love it! Knott’s Berry Farm has been transformed into Merry Farm spreading Christmas cheer for all to enjoy. The park is jam-packed with shows and holiday festivities including an ice skating show, daily Christmas classic performances like A Christmas Carol and The Gift of Magi, Christmas Carolers, a tree lighting ceremony, and “A PEANUTS Guide to Christmas”. You’ll also be able to shop the Christmas Crafts Village, visit with Santa, indulge on delicious treats. Certain times of the evening, it starts to “Snow and Glow” in Ghost Town. Everywhere you turn, there is something going on. Here’s where you will find them all!
