Neighborhood Birthday Party Night Parade

Sesame Place® is celebrating its 35th birthday in 2015 and on select dates throughout the summer, the Neighborhood Birthday Party Night ParadeTM will be transformed with lights. During the nighttime performances, the parade route is illuminated and the floats immerse the audience in a light show set to a toe-tapping musical score.

The entire parade will be dressed up for the occasion including colorful balloons, sparkly cupcakes and a brand-new, toe-tapping birthday song! Guests will enjoy three show-stopping performances about letters, numbers, and friendship along with energetic contemporary and classic Sesame Street tunes. The new, interactive birthday stop will have everyone dancing and clapping along with their favorite Sesame Street friends as they are asked to “put their party hats on and blow out the candles!” The new Neighborhood Birthday Party Parade is part of our special birthday celebration so don’t miss your chance to celebrate with us in 2015!

There is a designated area for disabled guests along the parade route. This area is on the east side (river side) of the parade route, adjacent to the Boy’s River Restroom. While this area was established to provide mobility impaired individuals and their families a place to view the parade, those with a mobility impairment may choose any other location along the parade route as well.
