Families and fans of all ages can join their furry friends in the Sesame Street Birthday Blowout show with a larger-than-life cake, visit Big Bird’s Nest and Abby’s Fairy Garden, and meet a special guest – Lily the Tiger (莉莉虎) from China. They can also take a Walk Down Sesame Street in a special gallery to relive some of their favourite scenes such as the famous 123 stoop and Bert & Ernie’s apartment.
Universal Studios Singapore will also launch a series of exclusive, Sesame Street collectible pins which fans can take home for free with a minimum spend in the theme park. In addition, guests can continue to enjoy the adrenaline-infused rides and world-class attractions, as well as extended park hours on select nights.
In honour of the milestone anniversary, fans can partake in various community events and photo opportunities held across Singapore. These include a giant inflatable installation of everyone’s favourite red monster – Elmo – at ION Orchard, Raffles City Shopping Centre and Universal Studios Singapore, as well as collaborations with local street artists ANTZ, Yip Yew Chong and Tiffany Yao who will each deliver their creative interpretations of the Sesame Street anniversary celebration in a special mural at Bugis Junction from 4 to 24 March 2019.
The celebration will also bring together 50 local and regional celebrities, influencers, as well as artistic talents from Pathlight School – the first autism-focused school in Singapore that offers mainstream academics and life readiness skills to students on the autism spectrum – in a first-of-its kind exhibition inspired by Oscar the Grouch and his trash can. Each of these individuals will be decorating Oscar’s trash can with creative and meaningful designs to commemorate Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary.
