The Mardi Gras festival originally started February 3rd and is running now through April 7th; you can purchase tickets here. Festivities are included with your theme park admission, Annual Pass or Seasonal Pass. There's lots of activities going on throughout the day, from select date concerts to watching the nightly parades or trying some of the delicious Cajun-style food (available for purchase.)

Later in the night the band Fifth Harmony took the stage. We were fortunate enough to see them perform before their announcement of their hiatus this morning via Instagram. The girls came on stage and performed songs such as "Worth It" and "Work From Home." The band recently celebrated six years since they formed on The X Factor.

Overall it was a spectacular day checking out the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras and the best way to end the night with an amazing performance by a band that's come so far over the last few years.
