Mardi Gras Bud Light Grand Parade
Attracting tens of thousands of merrymakers, the Bud Light Grand Parade is the crown jewel of the Soulard Mardi Gras season – and the largest parade outside of the Big Easy.
Approximately 130 Krewes spend months building their floats, hoping to win prizes as well as bragging rights at the parade. In addition to the floats, the parade features marching bands and, of course, millions of beads flying through the air.
Beginning at 11 a.m. at Busch Stadium, the Bud Light Grand Parade makes its way to the heart of Soulard and ends where the King of Beers is brewed: Anheuser-Busch Brewery.
