ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Adults will celebrate Mardi Gras in Soulard in a few weeks, but this weekend it's all about the kids at the Cardinal Glennon Family Winter Carnival.

The carnival runs from 11 a.m. until 5 a.m. Saturday at Soulard Market Park. Attendees can decorate masks, crowns, and make their own beads.

Other fun events are scheduled, and there will even be appearances by the Rally Squirrel and Fred Bird!

A children's parade begins at 4 p.m.
