Sesame Street 50th Anniversary
Roadtrip to DC

Video Production, On-Site interviews

 

PROJECT DETAILS

 

The Sesame Street Muppets went on a nationwide road trip to celebrate the iconic program’s 50th anniversary. The 10-city trip brought together community partners, celebrities, elected officials, and families to highlight the many ways that Sesame Street—and the nonprofit organization behind it—helps kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. Stops on the road trip will unfold over three days, culminating in free Sesame Street festivals where families in each city can enjoy live performances and kid-friendly activities.  

PBS's DC affiliate station WHUT participated in celebration held on the campus of KIPP Public Charter School located in Ward 6. This day was filled with unlimited fun and included interactive mazes, colorful stage shows, and unending activities for everyone to enjoy. The celebration also provided a treasure dig, photo opportunities, sweepstakes, and a cookies-and-milk snack station.
