Busch Gardens Tampa Gets Jazzed Up with Mardi Gras Celebration

Busch Gardens Tampa Gets Jazzed Up with Mardi Gras Celebration

Busch Gardens is getting jazzed up with music, beads and more open-air festivities with French-Quarter flair for the safe return of Mardi Gras, weekends and select dates from now to February 16. Catch colorful beads from strolling New Orleans Street Performers and brass beats from physically distant live musicians, all included in park admission.

While Mardi Gras may be about parades and celebrations, the food is really the focus of the celebration at Busch Gardens and the Mardi Gras Food & Beverage Sample Card (available in a 5 for $34.99 or 10 for $49.99) is the best way to enjoy the booths at a great value.

With a range from classic gumbo to soft serve ice cream and many drink options this Mardi Gras is fun for the whole family. WARNING: The following photos may make you get up and want to dance, throw beads, and enjoy some dixieland jazz!
