Spooky Farm Festival is a safe and family-friendly event that is happening each weekend through October, geared towards kids ages three to eleven. The fun starts at the gate, where your kids will get their own free treat bag and a map to explore all the fun waiting inside this amazing Halloween far. Your little ones can show off their artistic skills personalizing miniature pumpkins or decorating delicious cookies. If they’re a fan of Charlie Brown, they will not want to miss the show ‘The Monsters are Coming Charlie Brown that is performed right there in the park. And, if they enjoy that show, make it a double feature and catch one of Knott’s Spooky Farm magicians in action. Afterward, the kids can enjoy Spooky Story Time or participate in the costume contest and win some fun prizes. The adventurous among you certainly shouldn’t leave before checking out both of the fun rides (train and log) offered inside the farm.
