A crowd in downtown is serenaded as they had a quick breakfast and organized for their annual parade. In the background is the old St. Louis Courthouse. This is the site of the Dred Scott case which contributed to the start of the Civil War and now acts as an historic museum sitting in front of the Gateway Arch.
The parade is the largest in the midwest and dates back almost to the time of Dred Scott. Once everyone finishes their breakfast, they will be briefed on the days events and man floats, cars, mounted brigades and more!
Saint Boogie was a pleasant surprise that morning.
