Mardi Gras St Louis

An annual mardi gras celebration held over many days in St. Louis, leading up to Fat Tuesday. Held in the old French Soulard district of the city, every day there are parades and partying. Beginning with a family friendly pet parade, and working up to the adult oriented parades with beads and flashing and lots of alcohol. Attendance varies, but it highly dependent on the weather.

"Fat Tuesday" en Francais. Is the last day of the Carnival leading up to the season of Lent.

The Celebration that comes with Mardi Gras is something that needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated, Places like New Orleans, Rio di Janeiro, and Venice are all well -known for opening up their cities to thousands of tourists who make the journey to check out the floats, the parade, the parties and get their hands on some of those notorious beads!

While Mardi Gras isn't based on parading around half naked for shiny beaded necklaces, one would be hard pressed to find a Mardi Gras event that didn't include this in abundance. Girls congregate under balconies to show off their assets while the people above, and all around them snap photos and throw down beads for their generosity.

It's a crazy party that has something for everyone, and fortunately they pop up in just about every area of Europe, North and South America. There's even a celebration in Slovenia!
