Day One of Boysenberry Festival

April 1st kicked off the first day of Boyseberry Festival at Knott’s Berry Farm, which celebrates the berry that helped put Knott’s Berry Farm on the map. And Knott’s puts together some wild and crazy things for guests to eat during the festival, including boysenberry pizza, which was new for this year! There is also loads of entertainment for guests to enjoy, such as Snoopy’s Boysenberry Jam-boree, and they finally brought back the melodramas at the Bird Cage! And the one happening during the festival is hilarious!

Now, I had decided I wanted to make a boysenberry parasol, but between Portland, and the Knott’s Berry Farm auction, I just didn’t find the time to finish it! But I’ll have it done before the festival is over and share with with you all then, because, seriously, you need at least two days to eat everything!

Knott’s offers a festival tasting card, so guests can opt to try six of the special items for $25, including the pizza, which was actually really good, and I’ll likely have it again. I also tried the boysenberry cheesecake dipped in chocolate, which was fabulous, although the chocolate may have overpowered it a bit too much. I may try it again, but sans chocolate. I also absolutely adored the boysenberry cream soda, pictured above. It was so subtle, but still sweet and refreshing.

I have a few more boysenberry inspired ensembles planned for future visits during the festival and hope to share them, along with the new parasol when we get back from our road trip to Idaho!
