Knott’s Berry Farm and all three Southern California Knott’s Soak City water parks –Palm Springs, San Diego and Buena Park will be offering FREE admission to active and retired United States Military personnel on Sunday and Monday of Independence Day (July 4-5) weekend as part of their Tribute to the Armed Forces Program.
Additionally, active and retired members of the U.S. military will be able to purchase discounted admission tickets for members of their immediate family (maximum of six) for Knott's Berry Farm for only $29.99 for each Regular ticket and $23.99 for each Regular Knott's Soak City ticket. The free ticket offer will be available on the Sunday and Monday, July 4-5, with a valid military ID.
Knott’s will also offer non-stop entertainment all weekend long this 4th of July. On July 3 and 4 Knott’s guests will be the first to meet the cast of the upcoming film "Standing Ovation" which hits theaters Friday, July 16. "Standing Ovation" tells the story of five junior high school friends who form a singing group called "The 5 Ovations" to compete in a national music video contest for a cash prize of one million dollars. With limited funds and resources, these street smart kids use their wits, courage and passion to create spectacular song and dance numbers that compete with their arch rivals "The Wiggies." Cast members from "Standing Ovation" will be making their first Southern California appearance and will be performing on Knott's Calico Stage.
“Elvis” will also be coming to the Calico Stage. Long recognized as one of the best Elvis tribute acts around, performing artist, Raymond Michael keeps the memory of Elvis alive with his upbeat, classy and entertaining tribute to the "King of Rock & Roll” that will be running twice nightly July 3 and 4.
Additionally, guests who have not seen Knott’s ice show “Everyone Loves Snoopy,” or had a chance view “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular,” will want to make these a priority on the 4th of July along with Knott’s special fireworks presentation at 9:30 pm.
