Each themed area of the Park will be represented by its very own flamboyantly dressed 'Krewe' with its own static parade float! Throughout the day, each Krewe will be 'takin it to the streets' for some high-energy live entertainment filling the streets with all the colours and energy that Mardi Gras has to offer!
