Langhorne, Pa. (October 25, 2011)– Sesame Place, the nation’s only theme park based entirely on the award-winning show Sesame Street, is currently preparing for its all-new Christmas season. Set to begin on November 25, “A Very Furry Christmas” will be a one-of-a-kind family-friendly celebration with everyone’s favorite Sesame Street pals. The park will transform into a winter wonderland filled with lights, trees, shows, music, treats, rides and Santa Claus!
“A Very Furry Christmas at Sesame Place will give visitors a chance to celebrate the holidays in an entirely new way,” said Robert J. Caruso, Park President. “Our event is designed to immerse guests in a winter experience that allows them to see the Christmas season through the eyes of our Sesame Street characters. We hope to bring out the child in everyone with the millions of lights in primary colors, the garland hung with toys, and the music, shows and special Christmas parade.”
This 19 day event allows guests to experience Sesame Place in a whole new way, with a 25-foot Christmas Tree that lights up the night in sync with Sesame Street holiday tunes, three all-new Christmas shows, a great selection of wintertime treats and Christmas sweets, and awesome holiday shopping at the park’s two gift shops. Santa Claus will also visit the park each evening to hear Christmas wishes and pose for photos at Santa’s Workshop, where kids and adults alike will enjoy talking with a cheerful interactive snowman before being greeted by joyful elf attendants.
“We hope A Very Furry Christmas will become a staple in the region’s family-friendly Christmas entertainment,” said Caruso.
A Very Furry Christmas opens at Sesame Place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning Friday, November 25th. The park will also open each evening from December 26 through December 31. For a complete operating schedule please visit sesameplace.com
