Offering visitors a peek behind the curtains at how the floats are made, visitors are encouraged to visit the Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World in New Orleans for a unique look at Mardi Gras. The warehouse was opened in 1947 as Blaine Kern Studios – specifically for creating props and Mardi Gras floats.
Today, the studio has become a premier NOLA attraction, offering visitors a chance to view the floats in progress via guided tour. Moreover, the on-site Mardi Gras World Cafe offers tasty snacks and meals with incredible views of the Mississippi River.
