Florida’s biggest party is still in full swing this weekend at Universal Orlando Resort’s Mardi Gras with a musical performance by “American Idol” season 11 winner Phillip Phillips on Saturday, March 28.

Phillips’ first single, “Home,” became the best-selling and most successful coronation song of any ‘Idol’ winner. He has since had other popular singles including “Gone, Gone, Gone,” “Raging Fire” and “Unpack Your Heart”— all of which showcase his rugged, pop-folk vocal style. Currently, the singer-songwriter is preparing for a co-headlining tour with American rock band, O.A.R, this summer, which will feature songs from his latest album, “Behind The Light.”

Before each concert, guests can catch colorful beads by the handful during the festive Mardi Gras parade, which features 12 vibrant floats. Guests can also visit Universal Studios Florida’s very own French Quarter Courtyard to enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine and see performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.

Here is the schedule of events for the day:

·         4:00 P.M. – French Quarter Courtyard Opens

·         7:45 P.M. – Mardi Gras Parade Starts

·         8:30 P.M. – Live Concert Begins
