The annual fright-fest featuring the creepy characters of Richard Scarry begins soon.
BUENA PARK, CA — Knott’s Berry Farm has announced the dates for its annual Halloween transformation. From September 19 through November 2, the park will be transformed into Knott’s Scarry Farm on selected nights, and will be haunted by the terrifying animal characters created by children’s author Richard Scarry.
“Most parks go for the whole ghouls and goblins thing at Halloween,” says Knott’s (the theme park) spokesperson Jun Knott (no relation to park founder Don Knotts). “But to us, nothing is creepier than being surrounded by the animals of Busytown.”
Knott (no relation) shudders a little.
“I personally can stare down a skeleton or zombie any day,” she says. “But if I were to meet Huckle Cat, Hilda Hippo or Lowly Worm in a dark alley, I would totally lose it.”
Knott’s Scarry Farm is a separate ticketed event, with admission set at $43 per person, payable only in Busytown currency.
