This was by far a very memorable adventure. EVERY aspect of this event was amazing, from the video, King Cake, and lastly, the walk through tour on how the floats and props are made, to seeing the finished products. I’d recommend that anyone visiting NOLA, incorporate Mardi Gras World on your itinerary!!!!
