ST. LOUIS — The nation's second-biggest Mardi Gras celebration behind New Orleans drew big crowds and led to more than 100 arrests.
St. Louis police haven't released a final tally, but more than 100 people were arrested Saturday at the event in the city's Soulard area. Most of the arrests were for underage drinking, and the number is higher than the 90 arrests from a year ago.
Still, police say the crowd was mostly well-behaved.
About 20 people fell off a float when a board on the side of the float broke. Some had broken bones, but none had life-threatening injuries.
The crowds were large despite cold and blustery conditions on Saturday.
