This year’s new party animal themed parade will let the good times roll through the streets of Universal Studios Florida.  Stilt walkers, street performers, and dancers will walk amid floats wild with creatures from the Arctic, jungle, ocean, sky, and of course swamp. Beads will fly like confetti through the air during this colorful spectacular.  Below is a map of the parade route:

For parents with small children, this parade is not only family-friendly but also offers a special viewing area for the most petite of partygoers.  The Little Jester’s Parade Viewing Area is located in front of the Brown Derby Hat Shop.

In addition to the nightly entertainment, live music and Cajun and Creole cuisines will be available throughout the day in the French Quarter Courtyard- a pop up area in the New York section of Universal Studios. Universal Orlando Resort is bringing the taste of the Big Easy to you with beignets, jambalaya and more!
