Though it is a relatively recent tradition at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, the annual Boysenberry Festival fits the theme park perfectly, accentuating its roots while celebrating its present and ever-improving future.
I spent all day yesterday with friends exploring all that Knott’s Boysenberry Festival 2018 has to offer, and the experience only reinforced my opinion that the event is one of my absolute favorite things to do in Southern California during the spring season. We ate tasty boysenberry-infused food, boarded a wide variety of rides, and enjoyed foot-tapping music and knee-slapping entertainment around the park.
