We went to Mardi Gras last night and it was LOADS of fun... :D

It is held from February through May at in the older area of Universal Studios... the whole place is decorated...

if you arrive early, the perfomers come out on the street to chat and take pictures with you... on stilts... :lol:

The parade is fantastic... and if you like beads they throw TONS of them...

There are street vendors with Cajun food... we tried the Jambalaya and the Andouille Sausage... delicious...

Plenty to eat AND drink... :roll:

There is a big name concert after each parade... last night was Bare Naked Ladies...

you can look up the schedule...

we thought it was well worth the trip... :smt007
Make a Wish, Take a Chance...

:D Sounds like you're having a great time Laurel! We've been at Universal during Mardi Gras in the past and saw some excellent shows like Earth, Wind and Fire and Herman's Hermits.

Enjoy the rest of your stay! 8)
