What to Know
- Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park
- Sunday, Feb. 4
- The Peanuts Celebration continues every weekend in February
Walk into a stadium where a beloved sports team is about to take the field, and you'll encounter hundreds of jerseys and t-shirts in the stands, the sort of wearables that proudly boast the logo or mascot of the team.
Saunter into a concert hall an hour before a huge band's big show, and you can bet you'll find bevies of enthusiastic fans rocking t-shirts and jackets recalling the group's past worldwide tours.
And if you happened upon Charlie Brown Day at Knott's Berry Farm, a theme park with a multi-decade penchant for celebrating everything Peanuts? For sure, you're going to come across a multitude of yellow shirts, the kind with the black zigzag across the middle.
What to do, where to go and what to see
Which is exactly what happened on Sunday, Feb. 4 at the Buena Park destination, a place that's in the middle of its Knott's Peanuts Celebration run.
Special Peanuts-themed events are taking place every weekend in February, but one of the most photographable of those events, and non-"aaugh"-able, happened on the first Sunday of February.
That's when over 150 Charlie Browns grouped together for one mega Charlie-Brown-esque snapshot at the theme park's Calico Mine Stage. It's a notable number, yep, and "... a personal record for the park," stated a park representative.
Small signs bearing a Charlie-Brown-ism — "aaugh!" — as well as placards bearing his iconic face were handed out to the crowd.
And while the t-shirts ran the colorful gamut, from mustard to sunshine to deep yellow, they all rocked the essential mid-abdomen zigzag, making them very appropriate, indeed.
Even if you missed Charlie Brown Day, there's still time to meet Pigpen, catch a Peanuts live show, and visit Beagle Bonanza by train at the park; get details on the Knott's Peanuts Celebration now.
