Photo and Video Gallery: 2013 Universal Orlando Mardi Gras Parade



On Saturday 2/9, Universal Orlando kicked off their annual Mardi Gras celebration with an inaugural parade and concert by the rock group Lifehouse. Media were invited to check out the parade floats backstage with show director Lora Wallace, who showed of the 4 brand new floats (including my new favorite, a fire-belching Day of the Dead design), and sample New Orleans food from executive chef Steve Jayson.

Enjoy this gallery of photos from the evening, along with a complete video of the parade shot from the press platform in the park's New York section. The event continues on weekends through April 20.
