The real Mardi Gras may still be a day away, but that didn't stop St. Louis from embracing its French heritage and throwing an epic Mardi Gras party last weekend.

Things got a little too crazy for some folks, including the 55 minors arrested by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Saturday for suspected alcohol possession. Police also arrested six motorists on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and arrested two suspects on third-degree assault charges.

But for drinking-age adults who can keep their shit together, Mardi Gras was once again a boob-bearing, bead-wearing, heavy-drinking twerk-tacular.
