What a refreshing idea!!!;D
Yes, isn't it! During Quebec City's annual Carnaval, some restaurants and pubs along the Grande-Allée serve beverages at simple ice bars outside their entrances, while a few celebrate the festival with more elaborate constructions like this.
"Rio", the Canadian way ! :-)
That's it! We were a week too early for the parades.
Greetings Marilyn, What a beautiful shot. I love the colors. I wonder if they sell warm beer to keep it from freezing to fast? There were some people in the nearest cabin who put some beers out to cool and forgot them. We heard one of their cans explode and a few seconds later a lot of laughter. The winter festival up there looks like a lot of fun.
Thanks, Wallace and Rich. I, too, wondered about the beer but didn't check. I was most interested in food at the time. The place in this photo had lights of changing colours on the ice, so I could have taken a whole series of shots. I think my camera found the different colours and the different light sources rather puzzling!
Glad to see you made the festival. Great shot.
The festival practically came to us, since this street of restaurants began just around the corner of our hotel (which was not the Frontenac). The first evening we saw some of the ice work being done, and that was interesting to watch. The next night, the opening ceremonies were postponed because of the bad weather! But the following afternoon, I discovered that the dogsled race course ran right by our front door, and that was fun.
Che bar originale! Ciao Gianfranco
