Each year Universal Orlando offers a family friendly version of the famed New Orleans bash that features Cajun-style cuisine, authentic New Orleans flare, a spectacular parade, and on select nights  live concerts by a star-studded lineup of musical artists. The celebration also includes a uniquely themed nightly parade featuring festive Mardi Gras floats complete with New Orleans-inspired music, dozens of colorful dancers, and more than one million beads. This year’s parade will feature six all-new Mythical Creatures Themed floats including, The Dance of the Dragon, The Flight of the Pegasus, and The Rise of the Garuda. All of the exquisitely detailed Mardi Gras floats are engineered by Blaine Kern Artists, the same company that has hand crafted floats for the iconic New Orleans celebration since 1947.

If you don’t like the main stage entertainment, you can enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard with performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.
