Interesting tour of the creation of the floats and parades of Mardi Gras. A short film begins the tour with the history of Mardi Gras and how Blaire Kern become part of its parades. A sample of king cake available. We then proceeded to the actual workshop floor where we learned of the materials used and the construction of the props. We did the tour on a Sunday so there was no craftspeople working on the props. The final part of the tour was the assembled floats themselves. Our guide explained how the Krewes go about having a parade to the people who are on the float and the mechanics of the floats.
