For many people, Mardi Gras came and went before they even noticed and now Easter is only about two weeks away! So, if you are feeling like you missed out on the Cajun party of the year - its not too late! Besides the fact that you can throw your own Mardi Gras themed party any time or any day, there is the Mardi Gras celebration at Universal Studios Orlando! It runs all the way through April 19, 2008, so "Let the Good Times Roll!"
Mardi Gras comes alive at Universal Studios! The streets are filled with beads, live bands, and a rocking parade—but that's just the start. Every Saturday, legendary party bands are taking the stage to turn your night into a party of historic proportions! And no Mardi Gras party would be complete without all the cuisine and music that's made The Big Easy famous.
The Universal Studios web site says that vacation getaway packages start at $79. So for a little but of dough, you can have a lot of fun in the Florida sun! With sunny days as warm as 75 - 80 degrees and nights in the 60's, its a great escape!
