The Only Place Where Mardi Gras Happens All Year Round

Since 1947, Blaine Kern Studios has created breathtaking parade floats not only for Mardi Gras but also for parades and special events all over the world.

The Mardi Gras World tour lets you see exactly what it takes to bring Mardi Gras to life year after year. You’ll learn about the history of this unique tradition, going beyond its reputation for pure revelry to see the true roots of the REAL Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
