Images of Winter Carnivals now on Flickr

Early Canadian settlers were in for a surprise when their first winter came upon them. Winters were severe, bleak and long.

It was either give into winter and hide away till spring, or embrace the season and find ways to offset the harsh elements. Early settlers decided to embrace the weather and we have examples of winter carnivals to this day celebrating the season. Cities like Québec, Ottawa, Montréal, Niagara Falls, Toronto, and Vancouver have outside events ranging from sports, music, food, light shows and ice sculptures to enjoy.
