HBO and Sesame Workshop bring the beloved Sesame Street characters to kids and families in the Dallas area Saturday, April 21 from 11 am – 4 pm in Dick’s Court at The Parks Mall at Arlington.
The second annual traveling mall tour, “Sesame Street: F is for Friends” is FREE to families! Inspired by the 48th season of Sesame Street, the experience will include a 15-minute show starring costumed Elmo and Abby Cadabby characters, and will be filled with stories and songs about celebrating similarities and differences between friends.
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!
Families will enjoy character meet-and-greets, digital activity stations, a library reading corner, photo opportunities that include Cookie Monster’s new food truck, and more — all with a focus on Friends! The shows will be repeated throughout the day.
New this year, “Sesame Street: F is for Friends” will also make private stops at community-based organizations including libraries, family shelters, and childcare centers.
“With its exciting new songs and messaging, the ‘Sesame Street: F is for Friends’ experience will bring unifying Sesame lessons about respect and kindness to life for audiences while continuing to deliver all the memorable moments families love,” said Dennis Williams, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, HBO.
Come play and learn with Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster on April 21st at The Parks Mall at Arlington!
