The River City Casino Grand Parade is one of the largest parades in the Midwest. As the event with the greatest attendance in the City of Saint Louis, the parade is main attraction.
The parade features over 130 units ranging from the large and long standing parade krewes to new participants just getting started with this Saint Louis tradition.
The parade snakes its way from Busch Stadium to Anheuser-Busch. The streets are lined with hundreds of thousands of revelers crying out for the various beads and other trinkets tossed by float riders.
After the parade the crowd makes its way into the over 70 square block area that is the Soulard neighborhood to enjoy the various beverages, culinary delights, live music, and other unique events of the day.
