Despite COVID and Omicron, it’s the kick off to the Carnival season today in New Orleans.

Residents of the city are hoping the annual weeks-long celebration can be held safely amid the surge of COVID infections in the U.S.

Today’s festivities include the annual procession honouring Joan of Arc in the French Quarter.

Carnival comes to a raucous climax on Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, which falls on March 1st this year.
