In spite of the blizzard that hit Quebec City on Feb. 7, Alaclair Ensemble kept the crowd warm at the outdoor concert.

Mother Nature rolled out the white carpet for the opening ceremony of the Quebec City Winter Carnival, followed by the Pepsi Hip-Hop Party at the Ice Palace on Feb. 7. Bonhomme Carnaval and hundreds of carnival-goers welcomed the blizzard with open arms. Thick snowflakes blanketed the site, increasing people’s energy and adding to the magic of the Ice Palace.
