Knott's Berry Farm to auction off vintage park items

BUENA PARK, Calif (KABC) -- Knott's Berry Farm has partnered with Heritage Auctions to hold a special auction featuring more than 200 items from the park's archives.

Many of the items were once displayed inside the 75-year-old park but have since spent years in storage.

Pieces include coin-operated player pianos, ride animatronics and western paintings.

The park hopes much of the memorabilia will not only go to the highest bidder, but to owners who will find a good home for a slice of Knott's history.

The auction date is set for March 31 with a preview day the week prior.
