“C… is for Celebrate!”

Don’t miss our Fourth of July fireworks show, set to Sesame Street® music! Rock out with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster and Count von Count, as their music fills the air and the sky is covered with colorful bursts of brilliance. Be sure to watch us paint the sky red (and green and blue) from inside the park. This impressive display will certainly give you something to celebrate this Fourth of July!

Fireworks will begin immediately following the 9:00PM evening performance of the Neighborhood Street Party Night Parade on Monday and Tuesday. 

Don't miss another Independence Day event, our Fourth of July BBQ, where you'll enjoy an open air, traditional holiday BBQ and an American Flag craft station!

Entry into Sesame Place will be limited 5 minutes prior to the start of fireworks.
Time subject to change.
