A wild and crazy Saturday in Soulard as St. Louis celebrated Mardi Gras.  It was, as always, a busy day for police. They handled at least 69 incidents. Three resulted in arrests for city ordinance violations, one for a man relieving himself in public.  The other 66 were for minors in possession of alcohol.

The 2012 Grand Parade through Soulard did not dissapoint. Huge crowds turn out every year for what has been called the country's second largest Mardi Gras parade behind New Orleans.
