Knott's Berry Farm recently opened a backstage section of the park to accommodate eager crowds looking to partake in the holiday festivities. The area normally closed to the public and only open during select evenings in the Fall as access to Scary Farm mazes has been completely transformed with new pavement color, building signs, and plentiful holiday decor, lights, and photo ops.
Tables and fire pits are the perfect place to relax and enjoy limited-time seasonal food and drink offerings available in "Gingerbread Lane." Open select days through January 2, do not miss the whimsical holiday decor and iconic western touches only Knott's can provide in this newly opened area!
