Quebec Winter Carnival – Fun Worth Shivering For

Quebec Winter Carnival – Fun Worth Shivering For

What makes the Winter Carnivale so special is, firstly, most Americans don’t know about it. Second, there is fun for literally everyone. If you have kids, head for the snow slide, face painting and parades, if you are a couple looking for romance, the skating, and steamy spas are for you.

Whether young or old, no visitor can resist the majesty of the Ice Palace, the awe-inspiring snow sculptures and overall magical ambiance of the city.
