Bonhomme Carnaval is surrounded by his seven duchesses for the 64th Winter Carnival: Marie-Ève Sévigny (Sainte-Foy–Sillery–Cap Rouge), Dominique Doucette (Lévis), Jeanne Cinq (Beauport), Samantha-Kim Cantin (Charlesbourg), Marilyn Bariault (Les Rivières), Vanessa Tremblay (La Haute–Saint-Charles) and Marie Turcotte (La Cité–Limoilou).

Bonhomme Carnaval and 14 women hoping to be chosen as duchesses for the 64th Quebec City Winter Carnival appeared before a large crowd at Place Laurier on October 5. The young ladies, two for each of the seven duchies of Quebec City, anxiously awaited the announcement as to who would be chosen to represent their district.
