Let the good times roll at Universal Orlando Resort’s 2016 Mardi Gras celebration. On select nights Feb. 6 through April 16, guests can top off their day in the theme parks with a family-friendly version of the famed “N’awlins” celebration at Universal Studios Florida - featuring delicious Cajun cuisine, a dazzling parade and 14 nights of exhilarating concerts from some of the biggest names in music. The celebration continues weekend with a performance by Motown icon Diana Ross.

Universal Orlando’s 2016 Mardi Gras Celebration continues this weekend with performances by Motown icon Diana Ross on Saturday, February 13, and rock band Barenaked Ladies on Sunday, February 14.

Ross’ famed and remarkable career spanning almost five decades has resulted in major awards, accolades and music history milestones. Her massive launch into stardom began as the leading lady of The Supremes, producing hits such as “Stop! In the Name of Love” and “Where Did Our Love Go.” Her solo career proved to be equally successful, as her first No.1 solo single “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” earned her a GRAMMY nomination and continues to stand the test of time.

After 27 years together, more than 14 million albums sold and several GRAMMY nominations, Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies continues to fire on all cylinders. With the release of their latest album, Silverball, in 2015, the band will embark on the Last Summer on Earth 2016 Tour, which kicks off in June of this year. The band is best known for their Billboard chart-toppers, “One Week,” “Pinch Me” and “It’s All Been Done.”

Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration continues on select nights through April 16.
