ST. LOUIS Co. (KSDK) - Local retirement communities are celebrating Mardi Gras in style!
Bethesda Meadow and Bethesda Southgate featured "wheelchair floats" in their celebration.
Residents, staff, and volunteers held parades traveling through their skilled nursing communities with hundreds of beads and Mardi Gras attire. About 60 residents participated at the Southgate location.
New Orleans-style music filled the air, and a Mardi Gras King and Queen were crowned at each location.
