Today we've got a great update from the all new Mardi Gras festival at Six Flags Fiesta Texas as part of their kick off of 25 amazing years.
The all new parade that's being rolled out to multiple Six Flags Parks this season looks like a lot of fun and isn't to be missed.

I had the pleasure of spending the evening at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
They were showcasing Mardi Gras floats, a grand parade, and food fit for Fat Tuesday. The parade was seriously a showcase! The vibe was incredibly New Orleans style.
The music brings you there. Every float had a different theme and the music to back it up. It was quite the event and Fiesta Texas brought it to you in New Orleans fashion.
We had the pleasure of hanging out with Kaitlin Elliot after the parade and she was a gem. One of the talented people twirling a flag. Had a great time learning about the training and the amazing efforts that go into creating such an amazing event. It is truly incredible.
Now for food!!! My favorite part. The food was soooo yummy. I have to admit I had my doubts about them bringing me New Orleans style cuisine ....but they proved me wrong.
The po boy sandwiches were on point, especially the fried craw-fish po boy!!! Wow! I actually asked for extra sauce...it was that yummy!!! The muffaletta was so good and served with Voodoo chips that were pretty spectacular. I seriously need these in stock at my local grocery store. I will be going back just to buy these chips!!! The jambalaya was soooo tasty and the gumbo was amazing. They did Cajun food justice, and I was thrilled to try all of it.
We all know the rides and eats are great here at Fiesta but everyone needs to come experience this. Truly some great family fun with great drinks and great food. Definitely not lacking in the entertainment area at all.
Every character is so fun. If you do drink adult beverages try the Hurricane punch...so tasty!!! Beautiful characters throughout and amazing entertainment. I literally had 46 pairs of beads after the parade finished and didn't have to flash anyone.... but I gave most of them to kids. My kinda Mardi Gras!!!
Truly an amazing family event. Look for the adorable Kaitlin twirling her flag. She is so sweet with the kiddos and such a talent to watch along with everyone in the parade. You truly don't want to miss this event. I will be going back with my family and friends to experience every part of it. If you blink you will miss something!
So... go and don't blink!
