Gilroy, CA -- Bonfante Gardens announced that it will extend its operating season until mid-November. The park will be open weekends only from 10am - 6pm through November 16. Guests who bring a Coke can will pay only $19.95 for admission during November.
This is the first time the park's 3-year history that it has extended its operating season into November. The first two years the park was forced to end its season early to conserve cash.
Bonfante Gardens had its first successful year after entering into a management contract with Paramount Theme Parks. Attendance is up significantly in part due to a two-park season pass with Paramount's Great America in Santa Clara.
