Mardi Gras World

Mardi Gras World is the major builder of floats. A float can cost between 60 and 100 thousand dollars to build. To re-theme it each year coasts between 6 and 10 thousand.














All those beads can be repurposed for art. 


This one was created by elementary students.

This on was created by an artist and priced at $20,000




 Heading back into the prop department.



Satchmo is in for repair. He is an older paper mache head that has been patched and goes to paint next. Modern pieces are made from styrofoam.

People riding on the float are attached to a rope so they can not fall out. Also all the floats have a toilet on them.
