Temperatures were in the mid-40s over the weekend in St. Louis for the 33rd Annual Soulard Mardi Gras festival. The celebration is said to be the second largest celebration in the nation behind New Orleans.
The event offers a parade from the Riverside City Casino Grand Parade will begin near Busch Stadium and travel through to Soulard. A police task force helped Missouri Highway Patrol and St. Louis police make sure that no minors were consuming alcohol and nearly 66 people were arrested for this reason.
According to St. Louis Today, No serious injuries were reported in the festivities, but the child did fall from the parade barricade. The parade is themed “famous threesomes” and each float will be judged in order to determine the most creative. The event draws thousands of people from all over the country.
The St. Louis personal injury lawyers of the Finney law Firm are wishing your family a safe and happy Mardi Gras.
