Celebrate Big Bird's Birthday at Busch Gardens Tampa!

Editor's Note: Let's welcome another new writer to NewsPlusNotes, Sam! He may not be a Big Yellow Bird, but he will be helping out at NPN on a regular basis - and that's even better!  I look forward to his upcoming contributions to the site, and I think you will too.  Welcome, Sam!

I hope you've marked your calendars for March 19th! Besides being National Agriculture Day (how could you forget?), it's also a certain yellow bird's birthday, and he'd like you to celebrate with him. In conjunction with Busch Gardens Tampa's new Sesame Street Safari of Fun, the park is hosting a birthday buffet and celebration in Big Bird's honor.

The party includes a special lunch with the Sesame Street bunch and commemorative photo, as well as a chance to sing Happy Birthday to our fine-feathered friend.   I'll certainly be there in spirit, eating all the cookies.

The event will be held Saturday, March 19, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and costs $22 for adults, $15 for children.  A buffet-style lunch and 6x8” photo is included per family. Park admission is not included, but required to attend.  For reservations, visit this link and click "Dine with Elmo."
