Québec City is one of my favorite places to visit. My husband and I took time off this summer and we chose to spend time with friends and family around New England, and then took off on our own to Québec City. We love this city because, not only can we practice our french but, the people and the city are so beautiful. We planned to go see the New France Festival and it was really fun. I loved photographing the events and the city itself. Travel photography is a passion of mine, so little time to do it, but perhaps I will make more time for this in the future…we’ll see!
The New France Festival was taking place during our stay. It is a celebration of life in Québec City during the 17th and 18th centuries when it was a colony of France. The cobblestone streets of the historic Old Québec district are the setting for street performances featuring hundreds of characters dressed in period costumes. Visitors are welcomed to dress up and join in, or simply watch the events, which include dancing, music, markets, storytelling, thematic dinner shows and parades.
We love how this city is so friendly, safe and picturesque. It sits on top of a cliff overlooking the St Lawrence River. Truly a spectacular setting. Our next goal for Québec City is to go to the Ice Hotel during the Winter Carnival! Here are some of my favorite photos from our stay in Québec City.
I highly suggest a visit to this amazing city to our north. The food was wonderful, we met so many friendly and interesting Québec citizens and the festival was fun to experience. These folks really enjoy life and their history. Thanks for reading my blog. Leave me a comment so I know you were here~
