It is celebrated in many places such as Rio de Janiero, and of course Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but, for cold climate lovers there is a major annual celebration in Canada at the Quebec Winter Festival. It is the largest winter festival in the world, and attendance over the seventeen days numbers near one million. Carnival is usually celebrated just before the week of Lent, and for 2013, the celebration in Quebec kicks off on February 1st, and runs through February 17th.   ]]> doug@jaxfax.com (Doug Cooke) September Thu, 14 Mar 2013 10:58:27 -0400
