Last year, the kids and I had a chance to attend a fun pop-up event near Seattle here in Washington. If your kids are big Sesame Street fans, this is their chance to meet Elmo and Abby Cadabby, play, and have fun. Your family will have a great time meeting the characters for photo opportunities, seeing their show, and enjoying the fun digital activities. Don’t forget the camera!
Meet Elmo and Abby Cadabby in Seattle
Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? This year, HBO and Sesame Workshop present “Sesame Street: F is for Friends,” a free mall tour inspired by the 48th season of Sesame Street. These tours don’t just happen anywhere, so this is your chance to head to Alderwood Mall – Center Court (Near Macy’s) for this event on Saturday, February 3, 2018, from 11am-4pm.
When: Saturday, February 3, 2018, from 11am-4pm
Where: Alderwood Mall – Center Court (Near Macy’s)
The event includes a 15-minute show starring costumed Elmo and Abby Cadabby characters as well as stories and songs about celebrating similarities and differences between friends. There will be three repeat live-shows during this time. Pre-schoolers and their families will learn that while we may be different from one another, we’re alike in so many ways, too! It doesn’t matter if you’re a monster, a fairy or a kid, we can all be friends!
There are a lot of great photo opportunities and this year they include Cookie Monster’s new food truck, and more. The kids and I had a lot of fun taking photos together last year and sharing them with friends and family. It was well worth the trip to meet Elmo and Abby Cadabby and dance, sing, and play along.
I can’t say it enough, don’t forget the camera. Let your kids have fun playing with some of the fun digital activities before meeting their favorite friends. My kids loved some of the coloring apps on the tablet stations they offered last year. They also enjoyed looking at the books at the reading nook. I personally had fun seeing my kids meet Elmo and Abby Cadabby and relive some of my childhood favorites.
Grab the family and go have a great time this weekend at the Sesame Street: F is for Friends Pop-Up Tour at Alderwood Mall near Seattle, WA. Make memories with your kids locally. No having to travel all the way to Sesame Street to see friends. Sesame Street is now closer to home than you think! Be sure to tag your photos on social media with #SesameFriends and have fun!
