Guests can enjoy trick-or-treating around the park at eight trick-or-treating stations, Halloween-themed shows and parades, an interactive scarecrow scavenger hunt, and fun photo opportunities.

Kids will love seeing Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and Count von Count in their “Our Street On Halloween” show as well as enjoy special events. Some highlights include the Halloween Costume Contest on October 3oth and Spookley the Square Pumpkin meet & greet on September 17th and 18th and November 12th and 13th.

The annual Halloween Costume Contest features a Child Costume Contest and a Family Costume Contest. Guests are encouraged to get creative with their costumes and show them off at the Sesame Place Neighborhood Theater. Sign-ups begin at 10am the day of the event, with prizes awarded for first, second and third place in each category. The first, second and third place winners are invited to march in a special pre-show before the Sesame Street Halloween Parade.
