Facility:Mardi Gras World, Inc.
Description:You know this is going to be a fun tour as soon as you arrive. Colorful Mardi Gras props, like a gigantic jovial jester, fiercely realistic alligators, and a gorgeously exciting Marilyn Monroe with skirt flying greet one and all to this amazing fantasy factory.

After a brief introduction by a knowledgeable guide and a spirited video about the history of Mardi Gras and the company, you can dress up in authentic, ornate carnival costumes.

Visitors tap into their imaginations, as the ladies don sequined headdresses, gowns, and the gentlemen wear regal coats of armor, imagine yourself as a noble king or queen of the ball!

I took my 7 and 9 year old on this trip. I thought it was beautiful, and they were a little bored with it. I think if you are from the area, and have attended the parades in person, this would be much more meaningful. My son decided after seeing all of this that we need to return to actually see a Mardi Gras parade! The tour is very informative, and really informed me on the 'then and now' of Mardi Gras. It began with a short video (including a sample of a King cake & coffee/water), we then followed the guide through some historical exhibits, then into the 'warehouse' to see completed floats, old floats and floats in progress. There are some wonderful photo opportunities here. We got to see construction of next year's floats in action and learn many interesting details about the floats. I don't think this tour would be good for younger children at all. We had about 20-25 people in the tour, and at times it was difficult to hear the tour guide if we were not really close to her.
