It’s been a big year of fun and memories for the beloved PBS kids show Sesame Street, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019. The magic continues during the next tour stop for Sesame Street Live!, which brings favorite characters like Elmo, Abby, Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster and friends to the Spokane Arena. Everyone’s excited about a magician’s visit to Sesame, and Elmo dreams of performing alongside him, but for one small hitch: Elmo doesn’t know any magic tricks. Of course, all ends happily as Elmo and friends learn a valuable lesson about perseverance and patience, and that there are many magical moments to be found all around us if we simply look. The family-friendly show offers two performances, and kids under 1-year-old can attend without a ticket.
