Wanderlust Wednesday: Québec Winter Carnival


Do you recognize the snowman above? No!? It’s Bonhomme!– the ambassador of the Quebec City Winter Carnival, an annual winter celebration held over 17 days on and around the Plains of Abraham. I was lucky enough to experience the Winter Carnival three years ago, and I can’t wait to get back one day. Quebec City is magical at any time of the year, but during the Winter Carnival, which runs from February 1-17 in 2013, the city truly comes alive with parades, lights, food, music and entertainment for the family.

I don’t think there is anything else like it in the world!

Next time I visit Quebec City, I’m hoping to go with some friends on a girlfriend getaway, or with my husband and daughter for a family vacation — either way, it would be a spectacular time!
