If you are a homeschool mom, like me and you are looking for a fun activities to do with the kids this summer. I truly belive Ghost Town Alive is one of the best Homeschool Field Trips in Southern California. What’s more it’s open from June to September on select days.
As you know my family and I love Knott’s Berry Farm and we been blessed to attend almost all of their annual events. However, Knott’s Berry Farm Ghost Town Alive will take your little one adventure back in time to wild wild west.
Joy and I started our day in Calico by picking up a newspaper from the Calico Gazette!!!
As we read the town newspaper, it highlighted the events of the day. I wanted to go play bingo in town square. Since, Joy loves to dance she wanted to attend the afternoon ho down. However, our plans where a bit delayed when we stumbled across the news of two bandits that where on trial for trying to rob Calico bank!!!
Being a bit curious, we decided to head over to City Hall to listen in on the trial. Although the villains pleas to the crowd was compelling they were guilty and the Mayor of Calico decided their fate.
Once the trial was over, she assisted one of the towns folk with a speech he was writing. That he planned presenting to the people of Calico.
Afterwards we headed off to class for a afternoon session and the teacher give Joy gold as a reward for good behavior.
Of course Joy took it straight to the banker to add to her savings.
During the our visit to Calio, Joy learned how they washed clothes, delivered packages, and dropped by the stables to visit the horse.
Ghost Town Alive is filled with so much todo by the end of our day Joy was tuckered out.
That didn’t stop us from going to see Beach Blanket Beagle debuting this summer in the Charles M. Schulz Theatre. This, musical dance party set to the classic beach comber tunes of the 60’s and 70’s, and stars the coolest beagle around, Snoopy! Showing select days June 9 – August 19.
We end our day riding all the rides in Camp Snoppy.
At Ghost Town Alive your child can visit the beloved town of Calico and experience an authentic western adventure by becoming a honorary citizen of Calico. Where will unlock adventures through specific tasks, activities and an essential role as an honorary citizen of Calico. Hands down, I think this is one of the best events at Knotts and I highly recommend doing this as a Homeschool fieldtrip this summer!!!!
Ghost Town Alive is complete with bandits, cowboys, robberies, judges, a good ol’ western hoedown, and much more! It runs on select days now through September 3.
