Universal Studios Mardi Gras 2016 Concert Series Schedule

Have you always wanted to partake in the Mardi Gras festivities that you see on television?

Well, come on down to Orlando, Florida because the parties will be just as magnificent as the ones that New Orleans are known for.

From February 6 to April 16, you are invited to Universal Studios to grab some beads, Cajun street food, authentic New Orleans tunes, electrifying concerts, and a show-stopping parade featuring exquisitely detailed floats.

This year's parade will feature three new floats based on the Jules Verne novel, "Around the World in Eighty Days", designed by Blaine Kern Artists - the very same company that has been crafting floats for the New Orleans parades since 1947!

Universal Studios will do its magic once again by transforming itself into something right out of the Big Easy.

Unlike, the Mardi Gras that is really for adults only, in Florida the idea is to provide the same atmosphere in a family friendly environment.

The spirit of the celebration will still be there including an extravagant parade.

You can even get into the mix by dancing in the streets and collecting as many sets of beads as you can.

Even the floats will have that same New Orleans feel as they are constructed by Blaine Kern Artists.

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because they are also responsible for designing floats for the Mardi Gras in the Big Easy.

Universal's Own Rendition of the French Quarter

In the middle of all the excitement, you will find Universal Studios’ French Quarter courtyard.

There you will get the opportunity to enjoy some of the best bands from New Orleans right before the headliner of the night takes the stage.

Each year over twenty bands come in from New Orleans to bring vacationers Jazz, Blues and Zydeco music.

This kicks the Mardi Gras celebration up a notch and gives partygoers something to look forward to.

For those who love great Cajun food, the French Quarter also has some of the favorites like Jambalaya, gumbo, and even the infamous beignets.

For The Family

The Mardi Gras parade is a family friendly experience.

Kids of all ages will enjoy all the floats and other entertainment.

The Woody Woodpecker Kid zone is set up with a special Mardi Gras themed show for the children.

This show happens daily from 11am to 5 pm.

Should you want to get up close and personal head over to the Universal Music plaza early.

Get ready to party and have a good time.

Universal Studios Mardi Gras 2016 is guaranteed to be full of exciting bands, great food, and fun that all in the family will revel in.
