Canadians love winter and there is no better way to celebrate winter than at Carnaval de Québec, the largest winter carnival in the world. Don’t let the temperatures scare you, the festival has plenty of activities to keep you warm inside and outside. From neon night parades to live music to icy ‘snow baths’ there is something for everyone at the iconic Carnaval de Québec. Scroll down for a smattering of photos that’ll show you everything you missed out on last winter and will have you booking your ticket for next year ASAP!
Yes, your childhood dreams have come true. Last year at the Carnival everyone was invited to get into human-sized inflatable balls and roll down a lane made of ice to try and knock over giant bowling pins.
Talk about the most eco-friendly way to have a drink. These ice shot glasses not only keep your drink frosty cold but when you are done with them they melt away leaving no carbon footprint. Talk about cool.
Imagine what Burning Man would look like if the desert froze over… That is what these ice sculptures are like. A field of bigger than life abstract sculptures that you have to see for yourself.
Cheer to all the crazy people that did the snow bath last winter! Groups after groups of people went out on stage wth Bonhomme, danced around like crazy people in the freezing cold and rolled around in the snow. We dare you to go do it this winter.
Not often will you have the chance to watch athletes battle it out at a traditional ice canoe race. Stand on the dock so close to the race you can hear them yelling as they race towards you to get the buoy.
Imagine bigger than life creatures lit up, dancing above your head on a beautiful winter night. This is what the night parades are like at Carnaval de Québec, always featuring a giant Bonhomme who takes over the streets with lights and music all around.
The foosball table was brought to life at Carnaval de Québec last winter as people strapped in and moved side to side to work together to get the ball in the net. If this isn’t a friendship builder, we don’t know what is.
Talk about the ultimate cribs. Chill out in the ice palace for the day like a true ice king/queen. With every last detail covered you have to check out the inside of the palace for a true winter experience.
