Sesame Place’s annual fall celebration, The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular, is officially underway with not-too-spooky fun for all through Nov. 5.
This year’s event features Halloween-themed shows and parades, pumpkin decorating and interactive scavenger hunts.
Guests are invited to come dressed in costumes and enjoy photo opportunities with their favorite furry friends from Sesame Street.
Debuting for 2023 are several new festivities, including:
Tropical Trick-or-Treat Trail: Guests can now trick-or-treat on the beach. This trail winds through Big Bird’s Beach for Halloween fun with a warm-weather twist. As guests collect treats, they can also check off each Sesame Street-themed jack-o-lantern they find on their Pumpkin Pal Checklists.
Pumpkin Decorating with Abby Cadabby: Guests can use stickers, markers and more to decorate a pumpkin and take a photo with Abby Cadabby.
Spookley’s Pumpkin Patch: The kind and unique Spookley the Square Pumpkin will travel from Holiday Hill Farm to Sesame Place for the second year in a row. Guests can visit his pumpkin patch, located near the Sesame Street Theater, for exclusive meet & greets throughout the day, and to visit the all-new Spookley’s Hay Maze.
Halloween Storytime: Guests can gather in Sesame Studio theater to hear a silly, not-too-spooky Halloween story and take a photo with a surprise friend from Sesame Street.
Several shows are returning, including the Halloween mystery “Who Said Boo?!,” the Furry Friends Halloween Dance Party, the “Not-Too-Spooky Howl-O-Ween Radio Show,” “Our Street on Halloween” and the Sesame Street Halloween Parade.
In addition, guests can join their favorite furry friends for the Spooktacular Halloween Dine at Dine with Elmo & Friends. This special Halloween feast offers child-friendly American menu options. Reservations are required for the Halloween Dine.
The park’s annual Halloween Costume Contest takes place Sunday, Oct. 29, featuring both a child costume contest and family costume contest. Guests are encouraged to get creative with their best costumes for a chance to march in a special pre-show before the Sesame Street Halloween Parade.
