KNOTT'S GETS CORNY, HELP SET A WORLD RECORD:
Hey MiceChatters, want to help Knott's Berry farm set a world record? Join us for Knott's Berry Farm's Husking event on Thursday July 14th at 2:30pm. The Berry Farm will attempt to set a record for the largest number of people husking corn at one time.
“Knott’s Berry Farm chose a corn husking event because it really takes us back to our roots as a farm,” says Marty Keithley, Knott’s Berry Farm’s general manager. “Knott’s Berry Farm founders Walter and Cordelia Knott came to Buena Park in the 1920’s to make a living farming, and for a time corn was one of their crops. If it weren’t for the family farm, and later the family restaurant, we would not have Knott’s Berry Farm theme park today,” added Keithley.
The opportunity to be a part of the Guinness Book World Record Event will be open to all paid park guests on the 14th, as space allows. “To set the record we need to have at least 250 people husking corn at one time, “ said Knott’s Berry Farm spokeswoman Jennifer Blazey, “but we will be prepared for as many as 500 participants.” To sign up in advance for the event, send an e-mail to [email protected] and place “corn husking” in the message line. The event will take place in Knott’s Calico Square at 2:30 pm.
Can you help out at this fun event? Admission is NOT included, but if you have a pass, or can spend the small amount of money for park admission this will be a whole lot of fun.
