Five Reasons to Visit Sesame Street Safari of Fun Halloween Kids WeekendsOctober 11, 2017
It’s fall! Which means Halloween is right around the corner, but why wait until the end of the month to celebrate? At Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Halloween is celebrated every weekend in October with Sesame Street Safari of Fun Halloween Kids’ Weekends.
Join the beloved Sesame Street characters Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, Rosita and other popular faces for appearances in their own Halloween costumes. Here are five reasons why your family should visit the best kid-friendly event in Tampa this fall:
1. THEMED WEEKENDS
Each weekend will have a different festive theme. We kicked off this fun-filled Halloween event with Monsters & Fairies weekend, which included Halloween-themed arts and crafts that transformed the kids into a magical fairy like Abby Cadabby or a loveable monster like Elmo. This upcoming weekend will be Super Hero with Grover, where heroes of all kind are welcome. Spooky Safari weekend will follow, with the help of our favorite Sesame Street duo, Bert and Ernie, on a fun-filled scavenger hunt. The last weekend is Rosita’s Halloween Fiesta and it’s jam-packed with Spanish language influences throughout the area.
2. EXPERIENCE FALL IN FLORIDA
Fall events in Tampa Bay don’t happen very often, except at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! Each fun-filled weekend will feature trick-or-treating and fall festival activities, including a hay-bale maze, pumpkin ring toss and so much more inside out newly-expanded festival area.
3. DINE WITH YOUR FAVORITE SESAME FRIENDS
Everyone in the family will find something to savor in our delicious Sesame Street Character Dine lunch buffet during event days. You’ll get hugs and high fives during a Halloween-themed lunch while enjoying character story time, sing-a-longs, dance parties and special photo opportunities. Reservations are required as space is limited.
4. CHANNEL YOUR INNER ARTIST
Every Saturday morning during the event, starting on October 14th, from 10 – 11:30 a.m., parents and kids are invited to an exclusive Paint With Me class during Sesame Street Kids' Weekends. The experience kicks off with a meet-and-greet with one of your favorite Sesame Street friends followed by a 45-minute kid-friendly painting session led by an instructor.
