There are other attractions to whet your festive appetite. Everyone can join in a second line as the Zulu Mardi Gras Carnival Characters parade every hour through the thousands of revelers wearing their colorful flamboyant costumes. Who knows - you may be one of the lucky ones to receive a treasured carnival throw - the Zulu Lundi Gras Coconut!
