One of Busch Gardens' most popular KIDsiterate attractions is getting ready for a big birthday celebration. Sesame Street® Forest of Fun™ is turning five on April 4-6 (All five-year-olds need a whole weekend of birthday, don't you think?), and guests are invited to join the party.

Each morning, Elmo and his furry friends will greet guests in the park's England village. A celebratory parade will lead guests to the Sesame Street® Forest of Fun™ for a birthday bash that will include complimentary milk and cookies (Watch out for Cookie Monster!).

Other special Sesame Street® Forest of Fun™ birthday weekend events include special performances of Elmo Rocks! at Il Teatro di San Marco in the Italy village. Show times are available at Buschgardens.com/va or on the park map.
