More than 130 krewes and floats march, sing and throw beads to the rowdy hordes lining the streets. The Grand Parade steps off at 11 a.m. in front of Busch Stadium (Broadway and Poplar street; www.mardigrasinc.com
) and makes its way toward Anheuser-Busch Headquarters, where it disperses in orderly fashion. You are then free to roam into Soulard, where live music, restaurants and dozens of bars are ready to help you keep partying and good-timing into the wee hours.
