Krewe of Joan of Arc King and Maid, 2010

Carnival season in New Orleans kicks off on January 6th with Twelfth Night celebrations across the city - including the 10th ride of the Krewe of Joan of Arc. WWNO's Jessica Rosgaard sat down with the Krewe's president and founder, Amy Kirk Duvoisin, to talk about why the Krewe celebrates the Maid of Orléans, France.

The Krewe of Joan of Arc parade walks through the French Quarter on Saturday night starting at 6pm. A Tricentennial fireworks celebration follows at 9pm along the riverfront.
