The Empire State Building Honors Sesame Street’s 50th Anniversary This Weekend
It’s a big weekend for Sesame Street!
On Sunday, November 10, the famously influential show Sesame Street will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. In honor of the milestone, the Empire State Building will light up green and yellow this Sunday night.
Adding to the celebratory weekend, today (Friday, November 8) has been named “Caroll Spinney Day” in NYC, honoring the puppeteer and original Big Bird/Oscar the Grouch performer Caroll Spinney! Big Bird accompanied Spinney to the Empire State Building earlier today to kick off the weekend of festivities with an official lighting ceremony.
