Standing next to the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.
I’m going to split our Quebec City weekend trip into a few posts. Only because I have narrowed the photos down to 61 photos in total. But I think posting all those into one single blog post would get a little out of hand and probably boring for those of you reading.
These photos are going to be out of order. I’ve sorted them by activity. Today’s blog post is going to be all about the Quebec City Carnival. :)
The carnival was a great spot for kids. I spent a lot of the time creepin’ the kid’s stage as it wasn’t much talking, but more dancing and fun activities to enjoy. One, being a tug-of-war event. I didn’t realize what the people in train conductor costumes were asking me to do (French speaking), but what I figured out was that it was a female vs male in the tug-of-war. The ladies and girls won one round. Hooray!
I bundled up like this for the duration of our three day trip. 6 layers on top, 3 on bottom, scarf around my face the entire trip. Here I am checking out Bonhomme’s (that snowman shown below) Ice Home. Where he spends the rest of his winter’s stay ;) Bonhomme saying his farewells until next year’s carnival! At the beginning of the trip we were kind of freaked out by Bonhomme. But towards the end of our three day stay we were obsessed with him, and racing to get our photos taken with him. Hahaha.. These identical twin sisters performed an act in these inflatable balloons. Thoroughly enjoyed watching that a few times throughout the three days. Horse Derby was another main attraction, and quite scary to watch for the first time! I thought the men in those steel chairs were going to fly right off their seats with the horses racing around corners and doing 180’s.
That’s a wrap, for the first post! Stay tuned for two more posts of our Quebec City Winter Carnival trip :)
