You know all those rides that make Sesame Place such a fun theme park?  Well, they’re not going anywhere!  And attending this event is a great way for your family to enjoy these rides.

Sesame Street Party Parade

The Sesame Street Party Parade is so much fun.  It’s a great way to enjoy decorative floats, singing, dancing, and everyone’s favorite Sesame Street characters like Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Rosita, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, Grover, and more.

Photos with the Easter Bunny & Sesame Street Characters

You can see your favorite Sesame Street characters outside the parade, too.  They’ll be dressed in special Easter attire and you can get your photo with them!

But the Sesame Street characters aren’t the only celebrities in attendance at this event.  You can also meet and get a photo with the Easter Bunny!
