Family Winter Carnival Jan 28

The Mardi Gras season is in full swing. The Snowman Softball Tournament was held last weekend and this weekend is another event. The Cardinal Glennon Family Winter Carnival Presented By Fifth Third Bank will be held this Saturday January 28 at Soulard Market Park.

Various arts and crafts stations will be available for the children.  Kids can make their own beads, crowns, tiaras and capes in preparation for the parade that begins at 4pm outside The Porch on 9th Street. The parade will take the kiddos around the square block and end back at Market Park.  Last year's parade was led by Fredbird himself.

Babaloo and The Muny Kids will be among the acts taking the entertainment stage.

Look for other surprises throughout the day on Saturday courtesy of Cardinal Glennon and Fifth Third Bank.
