BETTER GET YOUR BEADS

There's still time to shop for your
Mardi Gras beads . . .

Whether you're decorating your 'King Cake'
or wearing too many strands 'round your neck,
you've got to have BEADS.

The Mardi Gras celebration and parade
are happening TOMORROW,
and taking over historic Soulard in St. Louis.

So grab your mask, get dressed for a wild time
and DON'T FORGET YOUR BEADS.
It's a Mardi Gras tradition.

If you're lucky, you can catch what they're throwing
from all the Mardi Gras floats along the parade route.
Parade promoters say 17-million beads will be tossed.
(It's amazing what people will do for beads!)

"Hey mister, throw me some beads."
