      Mardi Gras 2014 Floats
      Travel "Around The World In Eighty Days"
      Creative concept and design work for this year’s new floats began a year ago, with building of the new scenic pieces starting in early 2013. Countless hours and an astounding amount of wood, paint, fabric, glitter, and other materials go into the making of each new float. This year’s parade theme is "Around the World in Eighty Days," reflecting the sense of fantasy and exploration of Jules Verne’s classic adventure tale. You’ll see floats that take you around the globe to exotic locales, as well as three spectacular new floats bringing to life various modes of transportation: air, sea, and ground.



      Created Just for Kids
      Little ones get their own private parade experience in the Little Jester's Parade Viewing Area located next to the Terminator 2®: 3-D attraction. This area is available beginning one hour before parade starts.
