Mad for Boysenberry!

April 25, 2017   /   byJaney  / Categories :  Feeds

For Easter Sunday, Patrick and I returned to Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy the sights, sounds, and treats of Boysenberry Festival again. I also finally finished my boysenberry parasol!

During Boysenberry Festival I had the absolute pleasure of meeting J. Eric Lynxwiler, one of the authors of Knott’s Preserved, an amazing book about the history of Knott’s Berry Farm, and which I keep meaning to write a review of! Lynxwilder is a wealth of information when it comes to Knott’s, and he taught me so many wonderful new things about the park, giving me an even greater appreciation. His passion for not only Knott’s, but history in general shines through when he talks, and his is a joy to chat with. Plus, both times I bumped into him, he had the most spectacular boysenberry themed ensembles. I mean, just look at this custom-made boysenberry western wear shirt he had on!

Since Knott’s brought back the melodrama at the Bird Cage, Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies were kicked over to the Wagon Camp during the Festival, which I thought was really neat, as the Wagon Camp was original created for music acts and square dancing.  The Wagonmasters were among the most notable and regular of the performers at the Wagon Camp, and it’s wonderful that the Hillbillies can follow in their footsteps. Over the years though the desire for thrills encroached on the Wagon Camp, and today part of the rollercoaster Silver Bullet winds through part of the Wagon Camp. Although at times it makes for amusing stage antics, as sometimes Kirk would scream back at the riders.

Sadly, Boysenberry Festival has come to a close, and while I’m bummed to see all of the wonderful and unique treats leave, it means it’s just a few more weeks until Ghost Town Alive returns!
