float and prop Rentals for special events

Kern Studios stores hundreds of props and floats. They form the marvelous backdrop for Mardi Gras World but are available for rent as well.

Rental props for any event

Do you need a movie star, boogeyman, jester, or villain to enhance your special event or party? Explore one of the categories of the online catalog on the left to find the right prop for any occasion. Make sure to check back often: new props get added frequently! Because our prop inventory is so extensive, not everything is listed here. So if you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact us and surely we can help you!

SAVE a PROPS selection

If you are planning an event and want to save a selection of your favorite props to share or revisit easily later, create a Kern Studios account first. Your selection will be saved for you on the My Account page, until you change it or remove it. By using the ‘Print as PDF’ function, you can save your selection on your own computer as a PDF file, enabling you to share it. Do you already have an account? Log in here.

Your private parade

Yes, you can have your own parade! We have several rental floats available that can be used (at corporate events) for groups to travel through New Orleans in style. Naturally, we will assist with arranging the logistics and permits for private parades. Popular too is to rent a single float to function as an event stage. Rental floats are available either fully decorated or customized to meet your needs. Please contact us for more information.
