Sesame Place’s Neighborhood Birthday Party Parade Logo

Sesame Place, the Sesame Street themed park in Langhorne, PA, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this summer. But they don’t like to use the word “anniversary.” Instead, they call it their birthday celebration! (Kids understand a birthday a lot easier than an anniversary.) This is one incredible theme park, themed perfectly to the TV show, and in perfect recognition to the Sesame Street of both yesterday and today.

This episode includes the audio portion of the Neighborhood Birthday Party Parade. The stop-and-go parade features costume characters (with moving mouths!) singing and dancing for a celebration that lasts over 20 minutes. It’s a high-energy street show that everybody seems to love!

Sesame Place

Sesame Place is the official Sesame Street theme park located at 100 Sesame Road in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. First opening in 1980, the park is operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and is developed in cooperation with Sesame Workshop. The 16-acre park consists of water attractions, rides, shows and interactive entertainment, along with walk-around versions of the Sesame Street Muppets. Special events, including appearances by the Sesame Street cast, are held at the park as well.
