This year February in Quebec is all about the Quebec Winter Carnival and all the fun events that surround this annual festival.
From Feb 1 to 17, 2013, head down to the Plains of Abraham and enjoy the games and shows at Mr. Christie/KRAFT Village, check out the the TELUS Technologique Zone and International Snow Sculpture Competition or take a dip in the Arctic spas (bring your bathing suit).
Don’t forget to fill your need for speed on the Carnival Snow Slides. Take a spin on the Ferris Wheel and get some extra energy with some famous Beaver Tails too. If you get too cold, warm up at Espace Hydro-Québec with a hot dog, pizza or Hot Chocolate under a heated tent or on their outdoor heated terrace.
If nightlife is your thing then make sure to check out the parties at the Loto-Québec Outdoor Dance Parties under the glow of the ice palace. Try amazing food at the SAQ bistro or head off to one of the many off site restaurants and bars on the Grande Allée. For brave souls check out snow rafting, ice slides or night camping. I am cold just thinking about it.
La Brassée du Carnaval is a new addition to the Québec Winter Carnival. Enjoy the winter atmosphere and the microbreweries and try some beer and local drinks. La Brassée du Carnaval runs from February 7th to 10th. Information and presale at information can be found at www.festibieredequebec.com.
