SOULARD (KMOV) --  The annual Mardi Gras parade begins at 11 a.m. in Soulard today, but attendees should remember not to bring backpacks, bottles, cans or coolers.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says there will be officers in plain clothes on the lookout for underage drinkers.

Dotson also encourages anyone that plans on drinking to do so responsibly.

The St. Louis Mardi Gras celebration is the second largest in the country and is a big boost to the city's economy, equivalent to hosting the World Series.
