TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Busch Gardens will host Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends this October. It is a kid-centered Halloween event featuring a hay bale maze, one-of-a-kind animal encounters, character parades, and trick-or-treat candy stations.
Come enjoy “The Count Weekend” Oct. 22-23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p. m. and “Monsters & Fairies Weekend” Oct. 29-30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p. m.
Both weekends the celebrations are held at Sesame Street Safari of Fun.
The event will feature your children’s favorite Sesame Street characters in their Halloween costumes with special appearances by Count von Count, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and other popular faces. Your little ones are welcome to wear costumes as well.
Each weekend will have a different festive theme, organizers tell us. The first weekend will be themed after Count von Count, the famous Sesame Street vampire, where he’ll help you count your way through a “batty” Halloween maze.
Monsters & Fairies weekend will follow, with Halloween-themed arts and crafts to transform the kids into a magical fairy-like Abby Cadabby or a loveable monster like Elmo.
Character parades will take place at the top of every hour of the event. Plus there will be kid-friendly music along with the chance to meet with Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s animal ambassadors.
