During the year to bring in guests, Universal Orlando holds special events for guests to experience. Universal Orlando features events such as Halloween Horror Nights, Holiday Celebrations, Grad Bash, Rock the Universe, and, of course, Mardi Gras.

Every spring, Universal Orlando hosts its annual Mardi Gras celebration. Inspired by the traditional Mardi Gras festival in New Orleans, this event brings the vibrant colors, lively music, and festive atmosphere of the French Quarter to the heart of the theme park.

During Universal Mardi Gras, guests can experience an array of exciting activities and entertainment. One of the highlights is the dazzling parade featuring elaborately decorated floats, costumed performers, and enthusiastic dancers throwing beads and trinkets to the cheering crowds. The parade showcases various themes and characters, adding to the spectacle and excitement.

CFSAS tweeted on X (formally known as Twitter) an update for guests hoping to experience the Mardi Gras Parade. “Mardi Gras Parade has been canceled tonight due to one of the floats making contact with the construction walls.”

Before the Mardi Gras Parade, one of the floats had an accident, causing the parade to be canceled. While hopefully, this parade will be back and running in no time, Universal takes guests safety and Team Members safety very seriously.

Universal Mardi Gras is a family-friendly event that appeals to guests of all ages, offering a unique blend of entertainment, food, and culture. It’s a celebration that captures the spirit of Mardi Gras and brings it to life in a magical and unforgettable way, making it a must-visit experience for anyone visiting Universal Orlando during the event season.
