The 59th annual Quebec City Winter Carnival (of the modern version) is over.
It ended with thundering hooves and cheering crowds.
While a sleigh ride might sound like a peaceful way to pass a winter afternoon,
the competitors in the 10th annual carnival winter derby took sleigh rides
w a y b e y o n d 'J i n g l e B e l l s.'
For the whole story, read my QCT article about how this kind of racing began.
Just a hint, there's a royal prince, Olympic traditions, and crazy Quebeckers involved.
