August 30, 2013–
MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP — The night skies over Sesame Place® will be lit up with a spectacular fireworks show on Labor Day, Sunday, Sept. 1.
The nation’s only theme park based entirely on Sesame Street is planning an unforgettable end-of-summer send off with fireworks set to music and songs from the award-winning television show. Park guests can 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.
Labor Day, a national holiday first observed on Sept. 5, 1882, now traditionally signals the symbolic end of summer. Sesame Place guests will have the opportunity to celebrate summer’s symbolic end as they see the sky painted red (and green and blue) from inside the park. The Langhorne-based theme park has a longstanding tradition of entertaining guests with its impressive holiday fireworks. Fireworks made their debut at Sesame Place on Memorial Day weekend 2007. Since then, the family-friendly theme park has remained a favorite holiday destination for fireworks fans.
Fireworks will begin immediately following the 8:00 PM performance of the Neighborhood Street Party Night Parade. Guests are encouraged to arrive early. Entry into the park will be limited five minutes prior to the start of fireworks. Twilight Admission and discounts are not valid on fireworks dates. Times are subject to change.
Labor Day visitors who wish to maximize their time with the much-loved Sesame Street characters can also book the park’s popular Labor Day BBQ in Big Bird’s Riverside Pavilion, where at 5 PM, they can join everyone’s favorite furry friends at an open-air traditional holiday BBQ. Go to sesameplace.com or call 1-866-GO-4-ELMO for reservations.
Guests can purchase a 2014 Sesame Place season pass and get unlimited visits in 2014 plus the rest of 2013 free. There are three season pass options—the Super Grover Season Pass ($221.99), Big Bird Season Pass ($146.99) and Sesame Season Pass ($106.99)—which all provide unlimited visits through December 31, 2014 including A Very Furry Christmas. All pass levels include exclusive pass member events and a 30% discount on food, merchandise and Sesame Street character dining.
