It’s coming to an end this weekend! Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras is packing up the beads for the season after one final performance this Saturday night. The biggest party in Florida will wrap up with R&B singer, Trey Songz, and will have one last blowout before bidding farewell until next year. If you’ve missed the fun, shame on you…but you still have one last chance to get hooked up with beads, taste the authentic Cajun food and see the most authentic Mardi Gras parade this side of New Orleans!
Universal Orlando has had one huge Mardi Gras Season, with the likes of Olivia Newton John, Kelly Clarkson and many more diverse acts. This weekend it wraps up with Trey Songz, the top 20 Billboard artist with hits like “Mr. Steal Your Girl” and “Slow Motion”.
