Mardi Gras Comes to Universal Studios

Mardi Gras Comes to Universal Studios

There looks to be another great excuse to invest in some Universal Studios tickets this coming spring, as Universal Studios are set to host their very own Mardi Gras celebrations.

The event, which looks set to run from February 11th until April 14th, will treat visitors to the park to a vivid display of sights and sounds, with a range of live music and colourful parades taking place most nights. The 2012 event will feature live music from Grammy Award-winning artist Kelly Clarkson along with 13 other yet to be announced acts, spaced out over the festivals duration. The heart of the festival though, will be the music performed by authentic New Orleans bands and the many Cajun food tastings held in the French Quarter Courtyard. 
The event will also coincide with the opening of a new park ride inspired by the animated movie Despicable Me.
