It’s Summer at Knott’s Berry Farm: Ghost Town (is) Alive!

Dancing at the Hoedown…………..held every evening in the Calico Park. The days events are wrapped up, and the election results celebrated. Live music, dancing, and fellowship are enjoyed by the entire town of Calico!

Hey fans………’s summer time in Calico!  Time to head to town for the daily festivities, including the HoeDown at 5:30 pm in Calico Park! Jeremy and I were invited to the opening day festivities by Knott’s, who are always such gracious host.  We participated in the photo contest, (Jeremy took all the photos!) and we won the contest.  The winning photos are included in this writeup.

Knott’s Berry Farm is in full swing right now, with the awesome Ghost Town Alive taking place daily from now until September 4th.  If you haven’t had a chance, get on down there.  Join the citizens of Calico on a typical, busy day, and help Sheriff Wheeler corral the Mayfields once and for all.  Check for the daily newspapers to keep up on what is happening.  Bank robberies, school classes, a daily election, and so much more take place.

Bank Robbery in Calico!


The Mayfield’s are brought to justice, but they seem to wiggle their way out! and they never have their guns confiscated???

Jeremy and I had a great time in school, and at all of the town activities.  We visited the livery stable, danced at the hoedown, and voted in the election.

New this year is Snoopy’s Magnificent Magic Show in the Charles Schultz Theatre.  There was so much to do we didn’t make it there, but the show gets great reviews.  Knott’s describes it as:

“Snoopy’s Magnificent Magical Revue is a jaw-dropping magic show starring the World’s Most Famous Beagle, Snoopy and showcasing the mystifying and amazing magic of Magician Extraordinaire Greg Wilson!  The whole PEANUTS GANG will amaze and confound with their magical exploits and lavish musical production numbers in this family friendly show!  And who knows, guests might find themselves part of the act!  Snoopy’s Magnificent Magical Revue will mesmerize on select dates, staring June 10 – August 20 in the Charles M. Schulz Theatre. (Dark Wednesdays)”


Evening activities at Knott’s include Crazy Kirk and the Hillbillies now playing in the Wagon Camp Theatre and the Circus of Wonders at the Calico Square .

Ghost Town Alive is a fun event for the whole family.  Children and adults alike can participate, and help mold what happens in Calico as the summer continues.  We will be back for the end of summer festivities, and tell you all about it!
