Last Friday I went to Universal Orlando Resort to broadcast live and to also see all of the awesome Mardi Gras festivities. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes look into my time there.
During the day I explored Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and got to ride some awesome rides and roller-coasters! I also got to meet some cool characters walking around the park like The Grinch.
A little bit before the sun started to set, street performers and stilt-walkers started coming out into the streets.There were parades with street performers, elaborate costumes and of course... beads…. everywhere.
There are also concerts going on for select nights:
Saturday, Mar. 16 - Steve Miller Band
Sunday, Mar. 17 - Ziggy Marley
Saturday, Mar. 23 - NF
Sunday, Mar. 24 - Pitbull
Saturday, Mar. 30 - Bazzi
Sunday, Mar. 31 - Prince Royce
The best part is, all festivities are included with your theme park admission!
