Fête des Neiges

fete des neiges (4)Fête des Neiges happened at the beginning of February which was forever ago but I kept putting off sorting through my massive folder of photos. I honestly didn’t even think these would still be relevant this late in March but yup there is still a few feet of snow on the ground and its -10 in Montreal. It’s a fun festival and there was a lot of things to do…most of them are for little kids but me and Victor still enjoyed going to have a walk around. Thought I’d share our fun weekend day freezing our ass off and celebrating snow!

You should have heard the music for his performance, so bad and it sounded like a rave.

I probably will not have many current photos until the Spring hits because I am a little sick of the snow and right now it’s just so ugly outside. But I’ve shared a few from this weekend a few week’s back for Double Exposure Wednesday as well if you missed those.
