St. Louis Set to Celebrate Fat Tuesday
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – It’s the last call before Lent, Fat Tuesday and in St. Louis that means a parade.
The 11th Annual Light Up the Night Mardi Gras Parade is a scaled-down version of Saturday’s grand parade. Many of the same floats will hit the streets again and probably some of the same revelers.
The Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras in St. Louis parade is the only nighttime parade in St. Louis and all the floats will be lit. The parade grows in popularity each year and because it’s on Washington Avenue there will be plenty of libations for sale along the route beginning at 4 p.m.
Starting at 8 p.m., there is also an official after party at the Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Lumiere Place.
