The Joy of Living
The Québec Winter Carnival has gained international fame over the years through its renowned key figure, Bonhomme Carnaval. Famous personality of the celebration, Bonhomme Carnaval is a recurring figure during all the activities. He is the living incarnation of the snowmen that have enchanted children of Québec City for generations. Bonhomme is the ambassador of this celebration to foreigners and he is the symbol of the festivities during this joyous period of the year. Bonhomme proudly wears the traditional red hat and belt. Bonhomme was created in 1954 and since 1955, the date of the first annual edition of the Carnival, he has personified the “joie de vivre” associated with this winter celebration.
