I’m a big fan of Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida! I love that this massive event is actually free with your admission to the park. There’s so many fun in-park entertainers and stilt walkers, huge free concerts every week, delicious New Orleans food, specialty drinks, and of course, an incredible parade (and beads!)
Universal’s Mardi Gras is happening right now, February 4th to March 25th. For the first time ever, this massive party is running for 50 consecutive nights! (Yes, the parade is every night of the event this time!) This year’s parade features SIX all-new floats, all themed to mythical creatures including: Manticore’s Majesty, The Rise of the Garuda, The Dance of the Dragon, Phoenix from the Flames, Garden Sprites, and The Flight of the Pegasus.
Check out my video of this year’s event (and lots of photos below as well,) to see some of food, event merchandise, entertainers, plus the entire parade! If you’re looking for the concert lineup, see our previous post here.

That’s all for our coverage of the 2017 Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida! I know I’ll be stopping by a few more times before the event ends March 25th to try some more of the delicious New Orleans style foods and catch the parade again!
