Got an awesome kid? Prove it!

// Enter contest to win tickets to see Sesame Street Live at Tacoma Dome

Every parent believes, or at least should believe, their children are the most brilliant and adorable creatures on the planet. In that vein, Tacoma Weekly is holding another contest to win more Tacoma swag.

The contest is simple: Send us a photo (yes, just one) of your child (or children) with no more than 100 words about why he or she (or they) are awesome. The deadline is April 22. The images will be posted on April 23. The most “likes” on Facebook or votes on our contest gallery at by the end of the contest, May 3, will win a four-pack of ticket vouchers to see Sesame Street Live at Tacoma Dome, May 10-12. The runner-up will receive two ticket vouchers.

“Sesame Street Live: Can't Stop Singing” tells the story of Elmo as he gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand and finds there is something in the air. Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage with the who’s who of the famous neighborhood.

Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song, and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along.

Before the show, Play Zone at Sesame Street Live will be in full swing, where children can experience their favorite street by sitting in Big Bird’s nest, popping up in Oscar’s trash can, twirling in Zoe’s dance studio or visiting Elmo’s World. Play Zone opens one hour before the show and is free with your Sesame Street Live ticket.

Show Schedule: May 10 at 10:30 a.m.; May 11 at 10:30 a.m.; May 11 at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.; and May 12 at 2 p.m. Visit for more information.
