It’s mid-september which means that the Halloween season is in full swing! The must attend event on Mommy Fearist’s list is Knott’s Spooky Farm. The ghouls and shopkeepers materialize in Ghost Town on September 29th and keep the fun happening on weekends through October 28th. Of course, they will be awaiting your little ghouls on Halloween day too!

We always look forward to the costumed kids wandering around the park as they trick or treat throughout Calico Park and Camp Spooky. This year the trick or treat stations have expanded into Mission Row!

The highlight of Spooky Farm goes to the Peanuts Gang in their own festive costumes and always ready for photo ops. Don’t miss the costume contest or your favorite Peanuts friends in “The Monsters are Coming, Charlie Brown” located in Camp Spooky.

New shows debut this season, including a magician that will beguile kids and adults alike in the Calico Saloon. Then head over to one of Mommy Fearist’s favorite locations on the farm, The Birdcage Theater, for a “Spooky Story Time” featuring “eerie tales” that capture the sprit of Halloween.

For those who love the crawly creatures, Stanley Scarecrow is back again at the Livery Stables in Ghost Town proper with his “Creepy Critters of Calico.” Spiders, Scorpions, and Snakes…OH MY!

Last year my kids were enchanted with the Grand Sierra Railroad’s “A Trip to Camp Spooky” so I am thrilled that it is coming back again this year. The attraction winds guests through a Halloween adventure with cute surprises on the journey.

Then there’s the Halloween Hootenanny at the Timber Mountain Log Ride. An homage to everything we love about Halloween with beloved icons of the season and pumpkins galore. Guests 36″ can ride with a parent but the taller kids 46″ and above can take a ride by themselves.

About the Author: Erin Jefferson

Erin Jefferson-Foley (Mommy Fearest) is terrified of scary movies, gore and zombies. But she loves all things Halloween and Haunt related! Slowly but surely she has been dipping her toes into the realm of horror movies with great results. Pretty soon she will work her way up to watching a scary movie when it is dark outside. Erin has had a love affair with theme park Halloween events for the past 20 years. Her first time at an event was at Knott's Scary Farm in the late 80s when a family friend, a Knott's employee, escorted her into the park to watch Elvira and give her a behind the scenes tour. She was intrigued as she walked through the break room and realized that they were just people in masks and makeup. It seemed like only a short time later, Erin was performing for Halloween Haunt which led to her meeting the love of her life, her husband. Each year she cheers on her husband and his friends as they set up and run a home haunt. You can catch her helping with line control and repeating the same instructions over and over and over to the guests each night. She has been a professional dancer and actress for over 20 years. When she is not in the studio teaching dance or in her office writing, you can catch Mommy Fearest with her husband and two kids at various conventions throughout California. She enjoys Cosplay, Star Wars, Renaissance Faires, Halloween, haunted attractions, paranormal happenings, special effects makeup and horrible reality television shows.
