Your favorite childhood muppets are embarking on a road trip and they’re stopping in Dallas!
Big Bird, Elmo, and all your favorite characters on Sesame Street will be doing a 10-city trip to celebrate the shows 50th-anniversary.
Their road trip campaign will consist of free park festivals, live performances, and kid-friendly activities.
The tour starts June 1 in New York and then has Saturday celebrations in Washington, D.C., followed by stops on June 8; Pittsburgh on June 15; Detroit on June 22; Chicago on June 29; Dallas on July 6; Kansas City on July 13; Denver on July 20; Seattle on July 27 and Los Angeles on Aug. 3.
The Muppets will spend Friday to Sunday in each city, filming segments for the show with local kids and highlighting people and places important to the community. There also will be activities like a giant maze, a treasure dig, photo opportunities, sweepstakes, and a cookies-and-milk snack station.
“It brings together who we are – from the show to the local community organization to the fans – in a way that we had absolutely never done. It’s amazing. You think 50 years and things we’ve never done before: This level of local engagement in a comprehensive way is something we’ve never done. And we’re really, really excited.”
Sesame Street’s 50th season kicks off in November with a star-studded primetime which will include new takes on former classics and visits from “Sesame Street” Icons.
