Art Knapp's Funland
Every autumn, when the cool air puts an end to the growing season, the gardening experts at Art Knapp Plantland reorganize their Port Coquitlam greenhouse into Art Knapp's Funland. This harvest festival beckons young and old alike with games and rides that range from the popular and scary haunted tunnel to carnival classics, all of which operate on a ticket system. This year, kids can romp on a tire swing and in a bouncy castle, as well as enjoy the cricket ride, octopus ride, and bear-and-monkey ride. Amid the rides and games, vendors serve carnival treats, and bright-orange pumpkins sit atop rows of straw bales. Inside Art Knapp’s store, meanwhile, an ornate Halloween display presents frightening spectacles such as one-eyed skeletons and a miniature haunted town where inhabitants can only get dial-up Internet service.
