The Streets of Universal Come Alive for Mardi Gras 2010


January 25, 2010

Let the good times roll at Mardi Gras 2010! Universal Studios Florida boasts the largest Mardi Gras celebration outside of New Orleans – complete with a live concert series that features a diversity of musical stars, colorful parades full of floats (plenty of beads will also be thrown around!), elaborately costumed characters and delectable “Big Easy” cuisine such as jambalaya and shrimp gumbo. Mardi Gras 2010 at Universal Studios will begin on Saturday, February 6, 2010, and runs every Saturday night through Saturday, April 17, 2010, with additional dates on Sunday, February 14, 2010, and Friday, April 9, 2010.

Topping the entertainment list for Mardi Gras 2010 are such musical superstars as KC and the Sunshine Band, Heart, Kool & the Gang, Blondie, country sensation Dierks Bentley, hip-hop artist Akon, “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin, Miranda Lambert, multi-platinum selling rock band 3 Doors Down, Beach Boys (No. 1 selling American band of all time), Sheryl Crow, Flo Rida and Chicago.

The centerpiece of Mardi Gras 2010 will be the parade featuring more than a dozen colorful floats that wind around the “French Quarter Courtyard” – a replica of New Orleans’ legendary French Quarter – the heart of Mardi Gras.

The Mardi Gras 2010 celebration would not be complete without the taste of traditional Cajun and Creole cuisine such as jambalaya, gumbo and beignets, which are sure to tempt the palate of Mardi Gras revelers. Along with delicious New Orleans-style cuisine, guests can enjoy flavorful drinks made famous in New Orleans.

Mardi Gras is included in park admission to Universal Studios. Admission to Universal Studios after 5 PM on Mardi Gras event dates is $49.99 plus tax. Live concerts in the Universal Studios Mardi Gras Concert Series begin at 8:30 PM.

So mark your calendar for Mardi Gras 2010 at Universal Studios, which provides a wonderful addition to the dynamic rides and shows at Universal Studios Florida such as Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster, The Simpsons Ride, Shrek 4-D and Revenge of the Mummy – The Ride. Both locals and visitors alike will enjoy the nationally recognized musical acts that headline the Mardi Gras events.
