Carnaval de Quebec, Quebec
Carnaval de Quebec is a winter carnival in the heart of the old Quebec. It takes place annually from late January to early February and continues for 17 days.
Fondest memory: 1992
Went to Carnaval de Quebec on a school trip with my college. We were only there a couple of days. I would love to return and spend more time.
A classmate of mine had icicles on her eyelashes it was sooo cold. I don't know if the temperature was unusual but it was the coldest I've been in my life. And I grew up in New England and have been to Iceland. Someone told us it was 30 degrees below zero... not sure if that was really how cold but BRRRRR. A week later I was on a family trip to Bermuda and the temperature difference made it seem even more cold than it actually was.
I was in college and drinking was a popular activity of my classmates. One of my most vivid memories is walking around Quebec at night drinking alchohol out of a Bonhomme walking stick thing.
I have to go back to the winter carnival as an adult, not surrounded by girls who only went on this trip to drink. I regret not seeing more of the actual Carnival.
VISIT during the Winter Carnival. Here we see 'BONNEHOMME CARNIVAL'
Fondest memory: Participating in the Winter Carnival at Quebec City and all the great outdoor and indoor activities.
