Mardi Gras Tours

Mardi Gras may be the “greatest free show on earth” but staging this grand event every year is anything but free. It takes a lot of money, time and manpower. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make Mardi Gras happen for the millions of people who see it in person or on their TV screens around the world.

To see how Mardi Gras magic is created, a number of tours and exhibits offer behind the scenes peeks into how parade themes are incorporated into the floats’ designs, how those designs are translated into actual float construction and many other fascinating aspects of what makes Mardi Gras so special. To learn more about what tours are available and what times of the day they are check out the listings below.
