Sesame Street Parade of Lights
For a limited time, experience SeaWorld in an entirely new way during the Sesame Street Parade of Lights Drive-Thru! For the first time ever, and from the comfort of your own vehicle, journey through twinkling lights, dance to a lively Sesame Street soundtrack, and wave hi to your favorite furry friends. After passing through the entrance, begin your journey through thousands of dazzling lights lined with your Sesame Street friends physically distanced on parade floats while listening to Sesame Street music along the way. The excitement continues as you venture under the illuminated SkyTower to snap photos, drive under two different tunnels of lights, and cruise through Sesame Street Village. Make your experience even sweeter with tasty treats such as soft pretzels, cotton candy, and hot cocoa available to enjoy in the car with limited contact purchasing. Fri.-Sun. Event details.
