Sesame Place Visits NYC & J&R Jr Store #VisitBucksCounty

A few weeks ago I posted about Sesame Place Neighborhood Street Party coming to NYC aboard a double-decker bus that is co-branded with Sesame Place and Visit Bucks County. The Sesame Place team gave out t-shirts and other great prizes, along with tickets inviting fans to visit Sesame Place located in Bucks County, PA!


At the end of the day they made a special stop at the J&R Jr Store, for a private meet and greet, where those invited could enjoy light snacks, desserts, and a photo opportunity with Elmo and Cookie Monster. Of course I was there!


After taking my photo with Cookie Monster, I spoke with the Sesame Place team about their day and all the fun places they stopped. They shared how much fun familes can enjoy when they visit Sesame Place this summer. There's alots to do! I'll tell you more about that later.


Also enjoying the event were kids and their families. Kids posed for photos with Elmo and Cookie Monster, played games with the Sesame Place Neighborhood Street Party team, and just had fun dancing around in the J&R Jr Store room. That place really is alot of fun.

So what can families do at Sesame Place this summer?
  • Enjoy whirling rides, water slides, exciting shows, and endless giggles. Dance and sing-a-long with everyone’s favorite furry friends in the amazing parade, Neighborhood Street Party.
  • Learn about letters, numbers and friendship in 3 street-stopping performances that include 11 larger-than-life floats and a night parade that lights up the sky.
  • Later in the year families can celebrate the seasons with Spooktacular Halloween and A Very Furry Christmas parades!
