Sesame Street Halloween Event Coming to Busch Gardens Tampa


count-von-countBusch Gardens Tampa Bay will host Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends this October, a kid-centered Halloween event featuring a hay bale maze, one-of-a-kind animal encounters, character parades, and trick-or-treat candy stations.

“The Count Weekend” – October 22 & 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p. m.

“Monsters & Fairies Weekend” – October 29 & 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p. m.

The event will feature beloved 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. Kids are encouraged to wear costumes, too.

Each weekend will have a different festive theme. 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, guests can expect kid-friendly music along with the chance to meet with Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s animal ambassadors.
