The workshop begins with a guided tour where participants will learn about the float building process, as well as, the history and significance of Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Artists work all year round to build the spectacular floats and props that bring Mardi Gras to life. Each year there are over 500 floats built and decorated by these talented artists. This entire experience let’s your guests get up close and personal to the floats that will be parading down the streets during the upcoming carnival season. This truly is the place where Mardi Gras in made!
The Mask making activity is both enjoyable and rewarding. After learning a brief history about masking in New Orleans, participants will get to make their very own one-of-a-kind creation.
