Mardi Gras Celebration at Universal Studios Orlando Florida

Universal Orlando will launch its annual Mardi Gras celebration on Saturday, February 9, 2013, with four new parade floats, a wide array of cajun cooking, and a concert series of popular artists.

Today Universal offered a sneak peek of the new floats, each with a colorful new theme. This year’s parade celebrates “Colorful Cultures Around the World,” featuring several elaborate, hand-crafted floats built by Blaine Kern Artists – the same company that designs floats for the Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans
