Sesame Place Brings Holiday Cheer to Local Children's Hospital

by Staff

In partnership with The Joshua Kahan Fund, each December, team members and characters from Sesame Place visit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for their annual holiday party. The park’s Sesame Street characters put on a holiday show in the hospital’s main lobby for all of the children and parents to enjoy. Following the show, the characters visit each of the hospital’s children and provide them with a gift from the Joshua Kahan Fund.

Hospitalization is a very difficult time for families at any time of the year, but it is especially difficult during the holidays, and the Sesame Place show and visits by the characters helps to lift spirits and bring excitement. Here are some photos from this year’s holiday party at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia:
