So you're a through-and-through Peanuts buff, and while you can't say you've memorized every single strip created by the great Charles Schulz, you know the Peanutsverse nearly as well as your own.
You're so obsessed that you wish there was another Peanuts-cool dimension to enter, one that would complement the strips and books you love, as well as the incredibly famous television specials and films.
What to do?
Local news from across Southern California
Don your zigzag shirt, or Sally-style bow, and circle Buena Park on the map. For that's where the annual Knott's PEANUTS Celebration takes place, each winter, an every-weekend delight that delivers a host of Peanuts-themed to-dos to fans of, yes, all ages.
The 2019 dates are Jan. 26 through March 10, and, again, this is a weekends-only happening, so be sure to arrive on a Saturday or Sunday or Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 18 (the only weekday of the celebration's run).
What's on the super-cheerful schedule?
"One-of-a-kind photo opportunities," oh yeah, which will give guests a chance to "step inside" a Peanuts comic strip. There's a brand-new show charmingly called "Space Beagle" at the Camp Snoopy Theater, and the chance to learn how to draw Peanuts characters at the Bird Cage Theatre.
In Calico? You'll find Franklin and Linus at the PEANUTS Cowboy Jamboree, and Pig Pen, too, over at the Livery Stables.
And if you board the Grand Sierra Railroad, you'll find yourself on a journey to the Beagle Bonanza.
How to join animated annual festivity? Linus may have his blanket, and Schroeder rocks his piano, but a ticket to Knott's Berry Farm is what you'll need to play a part in this Schulzian slice of theme park sweetness.
