Its time for Mardi Gras

New Orleans isn’t the only place to go for Mardi Gras festivities.  Universal Studios Orlando rocks one of Florida’s biggest party’s every night from February 4th to March 25th.  For 50 nights you can experience all the family friendly excitement of a New Orleans style Mardi Gras. From a parade with amazing floats to stilt walkers, wonderful street performers and of course millions of beads.  On select nights at the Music Plaza stage you will be  treated  to a live concert featuring stars  such as :

  • Trace a Adkins ( Feb. 4 )
  • Collective soul (Feb 18 )
  • Olivia Newton-John ( Mar.5 )
  • UB40 ( Mar. 11 )
  • Toby Keith  ( Mar. 12)
  • Earth Wind & Fire ( Mar 19 )
  • The All American Rejects ( Mar. 25 )

Just to name a few. Before the concert you can head on over to the French Quarter Court yard  for some authentic Cajun and  Creole dishes, such as a mouth  watering Jambalaya or a succulent shrimp and Andouille sausage gumbo and you will absolutely want to leave room for a scrumptiously  sweet warm beignet. All the while listening to some of Louisiana’s most popular bands, you would swear you were right on Bourbon  Street! Best of all, this fantastic party is included with your park admission! After the parks close you are just steps away from City  Walk where anyone 21 and over can continue to party  the night away at some of Orlando’s hottest night clubs. So if you are craving some family fun with a Big  Easy feel head on down to Universal and experience all the amusements this special event has to offer.
