Mardi Gras Parade
The Mardi Gras Festival lights up the streets of Rockville with colorful Mardi Gras floats. Costumed characters toss beads to onlookers who gather up these souvenirs as a reminder of their day. Street entertainers perform along side the parade as they escort the krewe through the park.
New Orleans-Style Entertainment
From live jazz at Teatro Fiesta to the song and dance spells cast by Voodoo Krewe in Spassburg, our New Orleans-style entertainment fills the air at the biggest Mardi Gras Festival in Texas! Dance to the music of The Big Easy Band and Maraicahi los Soberanos, or be captivated by the all-new Viva Carnivale! in the Streets of Los Festivales.
Taste of Mardi Gras
Always popular are the authentic food and drinks of Mardi Gras, including gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, bacon-wrapped boudin balls, beignets, hurricanes, and a wide variety of beer. The long list of treats also includes gator bites, bacon wrapped Cajun pork ribs, and praline cheesecake.
The Houngan House of Voodoo
A voodoo priest lures inquisitive guests through room-after-room of his cursed French Quarter shop filled with magical dolls, potions, charms and gris-gris. This voodoo-themed walk-thru attraction at the Mardi Gras Festival is included with park admission.
