Last year was my first time at the Knotts Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival and now I want all the berries! The Boysenberry Festival is basically a month of celebrating all things boysenberry.
And it’s good. Really good…completely worth every extra calorie.
You guys! A Tasting Card is $25 and it covers your food for the whole day.
For. The. Whole. Day.
And if you have littles, they can probably even split a card and be filled up. Here is what you get: Boysenberry Pizza, Boysenberry Ravioli, Boysenberry Buffalo Wings, Boysenberry BBQ Meatballs, Boysenberry Fry Bread, Boysenberry Pana Cotta.
Our favorite is the buffalo wings… can you feel the joy?
Something for the whole family…
Going to Knott’s Berry Farm was on our California Bucket List. And now it’s checked off. That’s a bit sad for me. I really love this place. I have the best childhood memories of picking out geodes and then watching them get cut, and visiting all the historical areas in the western ghost town. I guess I have always been destined to move to the wild west of Texas!
My older kiddos are just aging out of Camp Snoopy and we are having a blast transitioning to the “big kid” rides. (Remember when Eli went on Supreme Scream last year?!? All the hearts!)
This year we did more roller coasters then finished out the day at Camp Snoopy. Also all the hearts!
Something I really love about Knott’s is waiting in lines.
What. What? (You’re thinking)
Yes, the lines are rad.
Stay with me: You have your kiddos undivided attention. You can scrolling your Facebook feed or you can actually be chatting it up with your little humans. You can people watch together. Plan out the rides you’ll be going on. Be present. It’s fun. Promise. And it’s even funner when you are snacking on a boysenberry treat. Trust me. More Food = Less Breakdowns.
We closed down the park and finished our night with the pana cotta and the chocolate dipped cheesecake.
We walked out of the park with full tummies and happy hearts. The kids are growing up fast.
Oh so fast.
And I can’t stop time. I’m not even sure if I would if I could, but I do know I’d like to savor every small moment. And this just might be the last time we are at Knotts for years.
Thank you for all the memories Knott’s Berry Farm. You are a California staple, and will always hold a special place in the Lawson Family’s heart
