NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans residents are ushering in Carnival season, hoping the annual weeks-long celebration can be held safely amid a surge of COVID-19 infections. 

Carnival season kicks off with a rolling party on the city's historic streetcar line and an annual procession honoring Joan of Arc in the French Quarter.

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

Authorities realized too late that the 2020 celebration was a major spreader of the virus and last year's activities were largely canceled. This year, the city has a relatively high vaccination rate and authorities are allowing the festivities to go on.
