Presiding over all is Bonhomme, the ambassador of the Carnival, shown above.

Visitors can also explore historic Quebec City, which is like a mini-visit to Europe. (Quebec City is French-speaking but all those in the tourist trade speak "anglais".) And don't miss a tour of the Ice Hotel, a short drive away.

2013 dates are February 1st to 17th: if you missed it, plan for next year and combine your trip with a ski day at nearby Mont-Sainte-Anne.
