Knott’s Scary Farm, the annual Halloween celebration at Knott’s Berry Farm in Southern California, has officially been canceled for 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. The news comes just over a week after Halloween Horror Nights was canceled by Universal in both California and Florida.
The annual Halloween celebration began with a three-day event back in 1973. Over time, it expanded into a six-week long holiday celebration including roaming “monsters,’ spooky mazes, and legendary scare zones that would terrify as much as they entertained you.
Deadline quoted a statement from the park representatives saying, “Regrettably, due to continued operating restrictions related to the pandemic we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel our highly anticipated 2020 Knott’s Scary Farm event. We know that this news is disappointing, but we look forward with great enthusiasm to making 2021 Knott’s Scary Farm our best year ever.”
Deadline is also reporting that the Queen Mary and Disney California Adventure have both canceled their annual Halloween festivities, as well. However, it appears that Six Flags parks are still planning a modified version of their annual Fright Fest event though there is no word yet on exactly what that will look like.
Halloween enthusiasts from all over the U.S. have wondered what exactly the holiday would look like this year and at least some haunts are attempting to provide spooky holiday entertainment including a drive-through haunted attraction planned in Orlando, Florida.
