Mardi Gras Parade
See street performers, stilt walkers, and amazingly crafted floats as you dance to the beat of Bourbon Street. This nightly activity occurs during the following hours:
February 7: 5:00 PM
February 5-6, 8-10, 12-17: 6:45 PM
February 20–24, 26–27 and March 1–3, 6–10: 7:15 PM
February 4, 11, 18, 19, 25, 28 and March 4, 5, 11–25: 7:45 PM
If you’re taking the kids, I recommend grabbing at spot at The Little Jester’s Parade viewing area in front of the Brown Derby Hat shop for an unobstructed view of the parade. Grab some jambalaya or king cake and sit to reserve your spot.

As if this party couldn’t get any better, Universal Orlando Resort offers live concerts on select nights. During our visit to Mardi Gras 2017, we danced the night away to the pop powerhouses, Fifth Harmony.
Check out this clip created by yours truly from the live concert with Fifth Harmony.
