Thousands Party Peacefully At Mardi Gras

SOULARD, Mo. (KMOX) — The better weather brought a bigger crowd to Soulard this year.

Yesterday began with a parade downtown that ended in Soulard where the street party proceeded for the rest of the day.

Police say they wrote 66 tickets for underage drinking and made three adult misbehavior arrests, well below arrest numbers in past years.

Mardi Gras officially ends Tuesday night with a downtown parade.
