Get Smart ‘n Tart Tips for Knott's Boysenberry Fest

Some berry good festival information is available at the Buena Park theme park's site.

Do you need a line-up of helpful tips when entering a theme park, especially a theme park you might have visited before?

Most people would probably say a big ol' "nope" to such a suggestion, because figuring stuff out, as you wander amid the rides and restaurants, is part of the adventure.

But there are a few special events that pop up at our most coaster-tastic destinations, the sort of happenings that require a little advance study, should you want to maximize, and merry-ize, your visit.

And merry-ize your visit to the Knott's Boysenberry Festival, you absolutely should, for the famous fest only sweetens up our worlds over one month of the year.

That month just kicked off, and runs through April 28, so your next course of appetizing action, should you plan on attending, is to pore over the special page of festival tips.

That's "pore," not "pour," though if you want to pour over the page, with all of the ooziness of Knott's boysenberry syrup, well, you do you.

Knott's knows, after all, how to get the best out of the fest. Some straight-from-Knott's tips?
