Check out 2013's music lineup and Celebrate Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando Florida
What do you get when you combine top-name music acts, authentic Cajun cuisine, thousands of beads and a colorful parade straight from The Big Easy? The biggest Mardi Gras celebration outside New Orleans at Universal Orlando Resort!
Universal Studios Florida will transport you to Bourbon Street on Saturdays and select nights Feb. 12 - April 23. Stroll through the French Quarter Courtyard while some of New Orleans best performers get you grooving to the Zydeco beat. Or simply kick-back and let the music set the stage for a culinary journey to The Big Easy filled with Cajun and Creole specialties.
When the sun goes down, the party is just getting started when some of the biggest names in rock, country, pop and R&B take the stage at Universal Studios' new Music Plaza. This year's performers include Pitbull, who will perform songs from his hit album, "Rebelution," rock legend Lynyrd Skynyrd, pop sensation Neon Trees and country-super-star Blake Shelton.
Top off the night with a rocking Mardi Gras parade complete with elaborate, hand-crafted floats designed and built by Blaine Kern Artists - the same company that creates floats for the New Orleans Mardi Gras. Best of all? The excitement of Mardi Gras is included in your regular admission to Universal Studios Florida.
