Map of the Bud Light Grand Parade, Purina Pet Parade and Parking Zones


There are many ways to get to Mardi Gras, but many times it's best to let someone else take the wheel and drive. You don't even have to force a friend. There are many safe and convenient ways to get here.

Take the Metro

The St. Louis Metro has numerous options to take you from your neighborhood to ours. On the day of the Bud Light Grand Parade, shuttles will operate every 10 minutes from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm between the Civic Center MetroLink Station (near Scottrade Center) and 10th Street in Soulard. The round-trip cost is $6 and tickets will be available that day at the Civic Center MetroLink Station. Get all the information at the St. Louis Metro website.

Soulard Residents

Since you're already there, we want to make sure your car is safe throughout the Bud Light Grand Parade day. We will be sending you information on Yellow and Red Zone parking permits so that the Metro Police know you are authorized to park in Soulard. If you have not received your pass by February 25, please stop by the MGI office. Staff will be in the MGI office (2200 Dolman) Monday February 25-Wednesday February 27 from 5-8pm for parking pass pick up.

Get Home Safe the Easy Way

Stay safe this Mardi Gras season and make it home without worrying about going to jail or worse. Our friends at St. Louis County and Yellow Cab, the official transportation choice of Soulard Mardi Gras, are ready to go whenever you are. 

Download the St. Louis Taxi app so you can hail a cab and make an easy, secure payment right on your phone and track your cab as they head your way. On the day of the Bud Light Grand Parade, we'll even have a dedicated taxi stand located behind Soulard Market so you can easily and conveniently get wherever you need to go!
