30 Sep 2019

Busch Gardens welcomes back Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends this year with Halloween fun every Saturday and Sunday in October. Included in daily park admission at Busch Gardens, families can go trick-or-treating with a special theme each weekend of the event. Plus, children can dress up in costume and partake in a variety of activities, including:

The Not-Too-Spooky Howl-O-Ween Radio Show:

This fan-favourite Halloween show is back! Count von Count serves as the master of scare-emonies and leads his pals through some crowd-pleasing tunes. With help from his Sesame Street friends—Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Grover, Oscar and Elmo—The Count produces a not-too-spooky Halloween show featuring song-and-dance numbers that get everyone on their feet! The show ends with a special finale that is sure to be a “Thriller” and entertain the whole family.

Fall Festival Activities:

Take part in autumn activities including a hay maze, pumpkin ring toss and much more. Located at Gwazi Field, visitors can hang out with Sesame Street pals like Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Grover and Rosita as they host amazing dance parties while dressed in their best Halloween attire.
