HAAAAAY YOU GUUUUUUYS!
I was let out of my cabinet! Jim told me there was a food event and I really wanted to go cover it, and to my surprise, he let me go! Some jerk on twitter said that this was a punishment, but I'm not buying it, 'cause it can't be any worse than getting Jim's leftover Chipotle shoved under the door.
So without hesitation, I hopped on the next available Megabus and headed to California's Great America. I didn't really realize that this was in Northern California. I thought I was going to cover Disney food...but, y'know...eight hours on a bus later...I was not at Disneyland. I was in Santa Clara....at California's Great America. Not...Disney California Adventure. Apparently there's a difference.
Anyway, I can't complain, 'cause hey, free food.
Now, back to more of the event: they had a kid station where kids could make their own masks. When I was there earlier getting a photo of this, not a lot were in there, but as the crowds picked up, this place was packed with kids making their own Mardi Gras masks.
Now, here's a fun look at....something. I don't know what it is. They haven't given me this paperwork to clear...but CGA is getting...something, and they're teasing the ever loving hell out of it online. Walls are up around the area, dirt and grass are moved, and they're prepping for something...did I mention something?
So ladies and germs, that about does it. California's Great America has a really great seasonal event on their hands. The park has really been stepping up their game, right alongside all the other Cedar Fair parks. I really have to say it's great to watch everyone put their best feet forward. The food here was Disney-level quality. I'd expect to have had any of those samples at New Orleans Square. So to see this level of quality move the needle is fantastic. I'm really excited to see what happens with this lovely little sister park to Knott's.
But for now, I have to get back down to headquarters. Jim is already mad the Megabus is delayed.
