Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando
One of the big pre-Easter celebrations is Mardi Gras, and outside Rio and New Orleans, few places do it better than Universal Orlando. This year the “biggest party in Florida” has been extended until April 11 2021 to allow more visitors to enjoy the spectacle. This year as well as a colorful Carnival atmosphere there’s a Big Easy bash in the streets with energetic dancers and costumed performances entertaining. Lofty stilt walkers stride by along with loud brass band music and of course there are lots of opportunities for catching beads to wear around your neck.
This unmissable Mardi Gras event is all included in the regular admission price. There’s a themed Mardi Gras Tribute Store if you want to pick up a mask, feathers, beads and more to join in the party. There’s also a big emphasis on food. The park showcases 70 delicious food and drink choices from 13 stands scattered around the park.
