Kicking off on Saturday, Jan. 15 and running through Feb. 27, the entire park will be “jazzed up” for a New Orleans-style carnival, complete with live music, extravagant costumes, Mardi Gras-inspired culinary offerings — including Cajun and Creole food items — and alcoholic drink specials, in addition to thrilling rides, animal encounters, and coasters.

Highlights of the event include:

  • A brand-new Sesame Street Mardi Gras Parade, debuting this month, that will feature festively-decorated floats, lively tunes, dancing, and Sesame Street friends dressed up for the occasion.

  • Traditional French Quarter cuisine at Bayou Bites, like spicy shrimp and pork jambalaya, crispy fried ship po-boys with remoulade sauce, shrimp and andouille skewers with dirty rice, and freshly-made beignets.
  • Mardi Gras-themed alcoholic beverages at King’s Concoctions, including the famous Hurricane, frozen Daiquiri, and the signature Carnival Cocktail crafted from vodka, blue curacao, peach schnapps and melon liqueur — and all beverages are served in a souvenir cup.
