Today Show anchor and NOLA fave Hoda Kotb is helping present an online Mardi Gras after the pandemic shot down this year's parades and balls, NOLA.com reports.
"Mardi Gras for all Y'all" is a three-night, four-and-a-half hour online party that is being presented by Blain Kern's Mardi Gras World and NOLA.com.
"I'm just pumped up about it," Kotb said during this morning's Today Show. "Just watch, we're going to make everybody happy."
The program is set to happen Feb. 12-14, and include guests such as Trombone Shorty, Archie Manning, and even political consultant James Carville, along with appearances from several Mardi Gras krewes including Rex, Bacchus, Muses, and Zulu.
