Soulard Mardi Gras: Bud Light Grand Parade
This event is the crown jewel of the Soulard Mardi Gras season and is the biggest parade outside of the Big Easy. It begins at Busch Stadium and proceeds through the streets of Downtown South and Soulard to the place where your beer was born: Anheuser-Busch Brewery.
This year’s theme is “40 Years of Magic, Music, and Memories”. Help us celebrate a century of this St. Louis institution as krewes ride nearly 100 floats that bring to life 1980, or 1981, or 1982, or 1983, or 1984, or 1985, or 1986, or 1987, or 1988, or 1989, or 1990,…and throw over 10,000,000 strands of beads to the throngs of Mardi Gras revelers lining the parade route.
