Every weekend for the past three months Universal Studios Orlando has transformed into the closest thing to the Big Easy you can get without crossing the Mississippi River. This weekend, however, will be the last weekend as Mard Gras ends it’s 15th year celebration with a “Saturday in the park”.
From Universal Orlando:
SPEND A “SATURDAY IN THE PARK” WITH GRAMMY-WINNING BAND CHICAGO ON THE

Universal’s Mardi Gras 2010 Celebration Concludes Saturday, April 17
