Universal Studios Mardi Gras Updates

Mardi Gras Event at Universal Studios

A couple weeks ago, we posted a blog about Mardi Gras 2010 at Universal Studios Resort in Orlando, Florida.  Universal officially announced the concert line up and some general details about the event.  We are very happy to bring you updated and specific event information, including event dates and times, park hours, parade and concert times, and culinary selections.

Event Overview

This year, Universal Studios Orlando celebrates the 15th year of their Mardi Gras event, which is an added-value event included with general park admission.  There will be a night-time parade each night of the event, consisting of 12 “Heritage Mardi Gras” themed floats.  There will be one headlining band performing each night on the Music Plaza Stage, and one band direct from New Orleans performing each Mardi Gras night in the French Quarter.
