Will They or Won’t They? 12th Night Fun Kicks off Soulard Mardi Gras


It's here again: that time of year when you can brag, "St. Louis have the second largest Mardi Gras celebration in the US!" The season kicked off yesterday at 12th Night, an event held at Johnny's in Soulard.  Guests donned their Carnivale finest, chugged plenty of beer, and made appeals to the all-important decision: whether or not to hold St. Louis' Mardi Gras festival. Considering the parade marching through Soulard afterward -- and our city's love of a good party -- we figure you know the final verdict.

Check out Steve Truesdell's photos showing all the good times just as they started to roll.
