Mardi Gras is known as the & #8220; carnival & #8221; in the United States and Universal absorbs this party spirit well!
According to Wikipedia:
“Mardi Gras it's a carnival celebration that takes place all year round in New Orleans, United States, being one of the most famous Carnivals in the world. Known for his plaster masks, seashell necklaces and band stops all month before the Naval Car, on “Fat Tuesday” - which means Mardi Gras in French. ”
I had the opportunity to enjoy this party well when I worked at Island of Adventure and I can say it's a really cool party. So if your trip to Orlando marries any of the party dates, a stop there might be interesting.
In this event at Universal you will find several shows and food stalls that you will only find on that date.
Universal revealed the schedule of these shows, let's check:
