Mardi Gras St. Louis: Bud Light Grand Parade
The Bud Light Grand Parade is the Midwest’s largest and most spectacular pre-Lenten celebration. The parade begins just south of Busch Stadium and winds through the streets of Downtown South and Soulard to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. Krewes from over 100 floats will toss over 10,000,000 strands of beads and other sought-after goodies to crowds gathered along the route.
After the parade, stick around to enjoy entertainment including the Bud Light Block Party, the High Heel Drag Race, live music at neighborhood venues, and a giant post-parade street party and celebration held throughout Soulard.
