Snoopy’s 60th Birthday Party
Buena Park, Calif. (Vocus) May 5, 2010
To celebrate the Peanuts 60th Anniversary, Knott’s Berry Farm will debut a new nighttime light show that showcases the Peanuts Gang and reminds us why our heart still belongs to good ol’ Charlie Brown.
Starting May 29, when darkness falls over Knott’s Berry Farm, Camp Snoopy will come alive with a continuous light show filled with Peanuts’ three dimensional figures, themed music, sound effects, voice-overs and colorful projections of the Peanuts’ characters. In “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular” guests will see their favorite characters in scenes that personify them – Lucy’s dream of being a Hollywood starlet, Schroeder’s musical genius, even Woodstock gets into the act as he and Snoopy go on a camping adventure.
“Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular” will run every evening the park is open after 8:00 p.m.
Over at the Charles M. Schulz Theatre, Knott’s Berry Farm is proud to present “Everyone Loves Snoopy” (dark Wednesdays) an exciting ice show debuting June 19. In this musical extravaganza you will fall in love with the Peanuts Gang all over again as Snoopy takes center stage along with world-class ice skaters in a show that will delight the entire family. Catchy tunes, elaborate costumes, special effects and show-stopping choreography make this production a not-to-miss experience.
Starting in August, Knott’s is proud to welcome Rock Band® Live to the Knott’s Boardwalk area. This one-of-a-kind multimedia experience combines the thrill of a stage show with live music that is guaranteed to rock! Guests will have an all-access pass to the hottest new show with the most triumphant rockers at the park’s Rock Band® gaming kiosks being chosen to participate in the show each and every day. Rock Band® Live runs August 5-8 and 10-15.
For the younger set, “Hooray for Hollywood” tells the story of the Peanuts Gang as they try to make it big in Tinseltown. This live musical review in the Camp Snoopy Theatre features the Peanuts Gang along with their friend JT in a show that’s sure to delight kids of all ages. Kids will also enjoy “Snoopy’s 60th Birthday Party” which will be held daily in Camp Snoopy August 1-8 in honor of the Peanuts 60th Anniversary. Kids ages 3-11 will enjoy a free chocolate chip cookie (Snoopy’s favorite food!), sign a giant birthday card for the Peanuts gang and can even enter a coloring contest.
