Day 133 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Carnaval de Quebec!!

Mr. Carnaval!

This guy had more Carnaval pins than anyone else I saw at Carnaval-it looks like he’s been going for many years! People in Quebec do take Carnaval very seriously and why wouldn’t they? It’s the largest winter carnival in the world.
