Aside from Lucy, who wouldn’t want to spend a day with Snoopy?
“Ugh! I’ve been kissed by a dog! I have dog germs! Get hot water! Get some disinfectant! Get some Iodine!”
Colt LOVES Halloween. As long as there is nothing scary to be found. He loves the celebratory part of the holiday but is petrified of all the frighteningly interactive decorations that scream as you walk by or the bloody ghouls everyone seems intent on putting up. Halloween is not so fun when you are scared out of your skin at the age of seven.
So when GiggySavvy asked if we would like to spend a day at Knott’s Berry Farms enjoying a “non-scare celebration of cheer rather than fear,” I jumped at the chance. Knott’s Berry Farms, a southern california theme park, hosts Camp Spooky, the social event of the season with shows, activities and of course, trick-or-treating all geared for kids ages 3-11. And every bit of it? NOT scary.
Colt is SUPER excited to see Snoopy, a family favorite and participate in the Snoopy’s Costume Contest and Parade.
I personally can’t wait for the Scary Stories at the Lodge where story tellers will spin the craziest, creepiest, silliest tales of the “Great Pumpkin Patch”. Nothing says Halloween mean to me like The Great Pumpkin Patch!
“It’s the great pumpkin Charlie Brown.”
Other festivities include, Monster Factory, a fun interactive maze where the little ones create things that go bump in the night. And? At the Creepy Crawly Critter Cave Knott’s park naturalists will amaze with slithery, slimy, creepy, crawly critters. EEEK!
Camp Spooky runs weekends October 5-27 and is included with the regular theme park admission. Halloween is made extra fun by taking the little ones to Knott’s for some spooky Snoopy time. What a great family tradition. And? You get to use that costume more than once. BONUS.
*Disclaimer – GigaSavvy has arranged for our admission to Knott’s Berry Farms, but the thoughts are my own.
