The month-long Count's Halloween Spooktacular includes Abby's Magical Halloween Maze, hayrides, trick-or-treating in the Sesame Neighborhood, and a new Elmo's World Live! Halloween Show. Each weekend has special events, such as Abby Cadabby’s Pumpkin Party, The Count’s Birthday Bash, and a costume contest.
