If you are a fan of Universal Orlando Resort, you know that the theme park is fantastic all year round, as there is almost always something going on.
At the moment, Guests can enjoy all of the frights at Halloween Horror Nights is currently underway, giving Guests spooks and nightmares. At the separately ticketed event, Guests can enjoy scare zones, ten haunted houses, two shows, and exclusive eats that you can only enjoy while the ghouls are out.
If scares aren’t your thing, don’t worry because the fun does not end at Halloween. One of Universal’s most prominent events is Mardi Gras, which takes over Universal Studios Florida. At the event, Guests are transported into a New Orleans party with stilt walkers, costumed Team Members, beads being flung in every direction, and it seems that next year will mark the return of the Mardi Gras parade!

This year, parade floats were scattered around the Park during the most recent Mardi Gras festival this year as the parade was put on hold due to COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic. Now that we have seen parades return to Universal, it makes sense that the Mardi Gras parade, which is a true fan favorite, would be back.
In the promotional video, we can see that Universal is heavily highlighting the parade’s return, which means it will likely be an event Guests do not want to miss. On top of the fun atmosphere, the delicious food options available for purchase are excellent, the concerts will return, and entry into the event is included with your theme park ticket!
Forget about your inhibitions. Forget about who’s watching. It’s time to let loose at Universal’s Mardi Gras. This ain’t no fancy tea party. The beads are back. The parade and concerts are back*. And every day and night you can enjoy food from New Orleans and dishes inspired by diverse tastes and flavors from from around the world**. It’s Florida’s Biggest Party, and it’s the loudest, wildest blowout this side of the Bayou.
So you can start planning that Mardi Gras vacation today as the event will last from February 5 to April 24 in 2022!
