Year after year, Knott's Berry Farm Theme Park pays tribute to Southern California fire and police personnel with free park admission during "Fire and Law Enforcement Days." This year, Sunday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 19, Knott's will extend free park admission for all active fire and police personnel and one guest. Up to six additional tickets can be purchased for $5 each.

"Knott's has always recognized firefighters and police officers as the real American heroes, but the recent devastating fires in October remind us once again how true this is," said Jack Falfas, General Manager and Vice President of West Coast Operations. "These are the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect and serve our communities every time they go to work."

Guests can enjoy Knott's blockbuster attractions, including the Xcelerator coaster, or GhostRider, Supreme Scream, the Christmas Crafts Festival and other Merry Farm celebrations. Children will be in awe of the redecorated Timber Mountain Log Ride. Renamed Elf Mountain Christmas, guests can witness dozens of elves amidst the twinkling lights as they prepare for Santa's big day. The world's most famous beagle once again stars in his ice spectacular, "It's Christmas, Snoopy." Knott's Merry Farm opens on Thanksgiving Day and continues through Christmas Eve.

To participate, active fire and police personnel must present valid, photo fire or law enforcement ID at the Fire and Police V.I.P. gate Nov. 30 through Dec. 19, 2003.
