There’s plenty to do around the Goulburn Valley this weekend.


Sesame Street Circus Spectacular

Finally, we can tell you exactly how to get to Sesame Street and being the last week, you better not miss it!

The Sesame Street Circus Spectacular includes all fan favourites from the much-loved children’s show. In a 90-minute spectacular, Elmo, Grover and the Cookie Monster too will perform at the Shepparton Showgrounds.

The final Shepparton shows will begin on Friday at 6.30pm, three sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday. For more information and bookings, visit https://www.sesamestreetcircus.com.au/
