Parades, floats, food booths, beads, live music, and so much more!!!📿🎺🎶

Mardi Gras Parade and Floats Throughout the Park

If you’re ready to test your bead catching skills be sure to check out the Mardi Gras parade and all of the elaborate floats throughout the park. Stilt walkers and bead throwers all dressed gorgous and very jazzy attire are something to be seen!! The park emerses you in the full feel of a Mardi Gras good time in New Orleans

And want to hear something really cool?? The floats are actually from New Orleans…how snazzy is that?! Be sure to check the Times Guide or the Universal Studios app for parade times so you dont miss out!

Tribute Store

The Mardi Gras Tribute Store is a much see/do at this celebration. Last years theme was Party like a Pirate…with costumes, sketches, models, and more behind the scenes Mardi Gras fun along with a unique shop to purchase masks, beads, tasty themed treats, and more, plus photo opts for amazing event pics!

Last year we came across the Shipwrecked Pirate souvenir and I really wish I would have picked up one….


I wonder what they’ll have this year!!

The Tribute Store is located at #2 on the map below…
