Langhorne - Mid-November marked the official arrival of Christmas at Sesame Place. Many families came to visit as the holiday season kicked off at this popular park located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.
On Nov. 17, Sesame Place opened for its annual "A Very Furry Christmas" celebration. Prior to this opening, the park had wrapped up its Halloween festivities and closed up for two weeks. During this brief closure the park had been transformed to a winter wonderland.
Visitors to the park were welcomed by multi-colored Christmas trees as they entered the park and greeted by more holiday festivity once inside the park.
Once inside, there is plenty to do, but the park isn't so large that it's overwhelming. All the water slides and summer rides are shut down for the winter, but there are other things to do that keep the kids busy.
Sesame Street characters can be found throughout the park decked out in winter attire.

The park is very kid-oriented with the holiday themes definitely aimed at the toddler/preschool and young elementary school crowd, however even older kids could be observed happily full of nostalgia over seeing their favorite characters from their youth.
