Soulard Mardi Gras 

When: Sat., March 2, 11 a.m. 2019
Price: free admission
This is it: The 40th edition of Soulard Mardi Gras takes off on Saturday, and it doesn't matter what the weather is like, people are gonna blow it out. Winter has been cruel, and any reason to party is welcome at this point. The annual Bud Light Grand Parade starts at 11 a.m. at Busch Stadium (700 Clark Street; www.stlmardigras.org), with floats, costumes, beads and more. Things really kick off when the lead marcher hits Soulard. The entire neighborhood becomes a street party that lasts late into the night, with drink and food specials at most bars, music in the streets and more beads flying about hither and yon. Admission to the parade and Soulard is free, but bring money for party fuel. And remember to use the porta-potties; the police will be out ticketing free-range wizzers.
