Starting from around end of Jan to mid Feb every year since 1955, the winter carnival  ( winter carnival website ) is when everyone – tourists or natives come out for hours at a stretch in the subzero temperatures and enjoy the snow to the fullest. The winter carnival is a very enjoyable and a high spirited event in Quebec City.
Activities in the carnival include snow tubing, ice slides, zip lining, dog sledding, making and eating maple syrup ice lollies, admiring the bonhomme’s ice palace, carnival parades, ice sculptures, etc, etc.
