Sesame Street celebrates 50 years with new interactive parade at SeaWorld San Antonio

SeaWorld San Antonio begins its Summer season on Saturday, May 18 with the interactive Sesame Street Birthday Party Parade starring everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends.

The colorful, musical, show-stopping parade, which is part of Sesame Street’s year-long 50th anniversary celebration, will feature 10 larger-than-life themed floats including the iconic Mr. Hooper’s Store and Count’s Castle.  Elmo and his friends will join more than 20 dancers, who will engage with guests during this highly-energetic, 17-minute experience. The parade will roll through SeaWorld May 18, May 25-26, June 1, June 8 and June 14 through Aug. 11 (excludes Wednesdays), and is included with park admission.

The new Sesame Street Birthday Party Parade will feature colorful birthday décor, sparkly cupcakes, and a brand-new, toe-tapping birthday song.  An 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 parade is the latest Sesame Street addition to SeaWorld San Antonio. The park’s Sesame Street Bay of Play area is celebrating its 8th year in 2019 and the Sesame Street Birthday Party Parade adds a whole new dimension to the Bay of Play experience.

“Sesame Street has had a long and popular presence in our park,” said Roland Garcia, SeaWorld San Antonio’s Vice President of Entertainment. “We’re delighted to expand our entertainment offerings for families and kids with this brand-new, engaging and endearing parade through the park. No doubt it will offer our guests some great opportunities for phenomenal photos.”
