Experience Mardi Gras behind the scenes. The entire family will be amazed to learn how the gorgeous, giant Mardi Gras floats are made. Kern Studios, the genius behind the magic, has been in the float building business since 1947.

Not only will you walk through a massive indoor facility where the floats are built from the ground up, Mardi Gras will come to life. Your family will get to dress up in elaborate Mardi Gras costumes, eat free King Cake, and watch a historic video about the origins behind Mardi Gras! Bring your camera. This is an experience you’ll want remember for years to come!
