Masquerade Scavenger Hunt

Surprise Jesters (Jambalaya, Gumbo and Cajun)
Our surprise jesters Jambalaya, Gumbo and Cajun are ready to “spice up” your day with a little treat. If you catch this jazzy trio around the park, snap a “Mardi Gras moment” selfie for a chance to be featured on our social channels.
