The Only Place Where Mardi Gras Happens All Year Round

Since 1947, Blaine Kern Studios has built breathtaking parade floats not only for Mardi Gras but for parades all over the world.

Take our day tour to see what it takes to bring Mardi Gras to life year after year—you’ll learn about the history of this unique and festive tradition and go beyond its reputation for revelry to get a deeper understanding of the real Mardi Gras.

The whole family will love the experience of touring the space where our artisans create spectacular floats for over 40 parades every year.
