Quebec Winter Carnival is Coming – 2013 Style

Time to get excited, Bonhomme is very nearly back…

The Quebec Carnival, with with Loto-Quebec, are offering a unique experience for visitors for the 59th edition.

With a program filled with new features and renewed classics, this edition will be a grand affair from February 1 to 17.

The city will literally be gripped by the Carnival fever. This year, the organization has made the first steps to make Quebec a national winter capital.

From February 6 to 9, from 18h to 23h, Quebec’s architectural richness will light up. Simultaneously, the Palais Montcalm, the Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica, the Morrin Centre, and the fortifications around the planes of Abraham will be transformed or demolished (we sincerely hope nothing is going to be demolished – ed). This project will become, in 2014, an international competition to set Quebec in the “Villes lumières du monde”.

This year Bonhomme will have a dedicated statue.

24 feet high, this aluminum based structure situated near the National Assembly will form Bonhomme’s silhouette.

To follow all the Bonhomme Carnaval going-on, there is a mobile application available.

The Carnaval App brought to us by Telus is available for free for android and iPhone (what about Blackberry).

This App allows the users to plan their day at the carnival and to be be aware of all the activities going on. For more information visit the Quebec Winter Carnival website:  www.carnaval.qc.ca.
