Celebrating together
Trust a Canadian to always figure out a way to get the most out of a celebration. Get spirited away at Carnaval de Québec visiting an ice palace or watching the unique ice-canoe races. Head to Alberta and walk the midway at the Calgary Stampede to sample delicious (and often daring) foods. Then it’s off to the chuckwagon races, barrel races and rodeo. If you don’t own a toque or a stetson yet, we’ll of course be able to point you in the right direction. Toque /tōk/ Canadian: A close-fitting knitted hat, often with a tassel or pom-pom on the crown.
