Rose Monday carnival parade kicked of in Cologne despite storm warnings, Germany

Rose Monday carnival parade

The carnival parade on Rose Monday, the religious Christian holiday that falls before Ash Wednesday, kicked off on Monday as scheduled in the western German city of Cologne despite storm warnings.
However, several Rose Monday carnival parades in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia were canceled, as the German weather service (DWD) predicted stormy gusts or squalls of magnitude 8 or 9 for the area.
