5,000 + 50,000 = Great Family Fun

You don't have to wait for the 2006 season of Six Flags to find great family fun in St. Louis. At 1:00 pm on Sunday, February 19, visit Soulard for the annual Krewe Barkus Dog Parade.

5,000 dogs and 50,000 human spectators will fill the historic streets of Soulard for this offbeat, family-friendly festival.

If you lived in Soulard, you wouldn't think that Mardis Gras was so great.

It's where people come to get drunk and crazy. Would you want that in your neighborhood?

Soulard is party central. Nobody moves to Soulard unless they want to party. A bunch of 12 steps complain about Mardi Gras because they don't want people to enjoy themselves. The hell with them, and there is nothing they can do about Mardi Gras, anyway. Mayor Slay sees Mardi Gras as a source of revenue for the City of St. Louis. That is the end of the 12 stepers. Just wait until Brian Waybe becomes alderman for Soulard. Then we will have a party. Like I say, if you throw a party, then party. Don't just fruit around.
