Florida’s Biggest Party kicked off this past weekend with awesome bands, po’boys, and beads! I’m talking about Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras, of course. From live concerts and tasty Cajun-style eats, to a constellation-themed parade that’s out of this world, the most authentic Mardi Gras celebration east of the Mississippi is back now through April 7.

International superstar and GRAMMY award-winning recording artist Sean Paul brought down the house as the first of 13 headlining acts performing on select nights during the star-studded event. Up next on the concert lineup? California-style music icons, The Beach Boys, GRAMMY Award-winning rapper, Macklemore, multiplatinum chart-toppers, Fifth Harmony – and more!

You can check out the full concert lineup here.

Just as dazzling as it is colorful, the nighttime Mardi Gras parade is back to keep the good times rolling with new celestial-themed floats. The hand-crafted floats light up the night with jubilant color and loads of glitter. Here’s a look at these stellar creations.

Looking for a taste of The Big Easy? The authentic sounds of Bourbon Street and mouthwatering beignets, muffulettas, jambalaya and more await you in the French Quarter Courtyard.
