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. Metro is also offering you a chance to win passes to the Bud Light Party Tent and lodging Downtown, where you can use your free shuttle passes to get to and from the Bud Light Grand Parade easily and safely. Enter to win here.

And if you park in one of the lots in Laclede's Landing or take the MetroLink to the Arch-Landing Station, you can catch a FREE shuttle running between there and 3rd and Lafayette from 9:30 am to 10:30 pm. And don't forget that Historic Laclede's Landing is the official after party destination of Mardi Gras, with many restaurants and riverboat gaming, not to mention bars and clubs that stay open until 3:00 am.

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 5 or have more than two vehicles that require on-street parking, then please come by the Mardi Gras office at 2200 Dolman with proof of residence.
