Floats take to the streets for Mardi Gras Parade

Attendees reach for an airborne beaded necklace during the annual Mardi Gras Grand Parade on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020, in St. Louis. Floats traveled more than three miles from Busch Stadium to Soulard and the Anheuser-Busch Brewery.

So far, it seems most of the 400,000 or so Mardi Gras revelers in Soulard are staying out of trouble. Serious trouble, anyways.

As of 4:30 p.m., 26 subjects had been arrested at the day-long festivities, according to St. Louis police. The subjects face various charges including minor in possession of alcohol, possessing false identification and procuring beer for a minor.

“To my knowledge, there have not been any ‘assault’ related arrests at this time,” St. Louis Police Officer Michelle Woodling said in an e-mail.

A complete tally of arrests won’t be available until Monday morning.
