Celebrate Halloween with the return of Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends.

Kids’ Weekends are included with regular daily admission to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and younger guests are welcome to wear their best Halloween costumes and enjoy fun fall activities like:

The Not-Too-Spooky Howl-O-Ween Radio Show (NEW)

In this all-new Halloween stage show, Count Von Count will be the master of “scare-emonies” as he leads his Sesame Street friends through some of his favorite songs. With the help of Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Zoe, Oscar, Grover, and Elmo, The Count will host a not-so-scary Halloween show featuring song and dance numbers that will get everyone moving.

The show will come to an end with a finale that’s sure to be a “Thriller” for the entire family.
