ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police say the St. Louis Mardi Gras celebration was a little less rowdy than in recent years.

Weather may have been part of the reason. After several days of unseasonably warm weather, Saturday was cold for the nation’s second-largest Mardi Gras celebration behind the one in New Orleans. Still, several thousand people turned out in the city’s Soulard area.

Police say 45 people were arrested, mostly minors in possession of alcohol or for having fake IDs.
