Quebec City’s annual winter festival, or Carnaval de Québec, has been a cultural fixture in the region since 1955. The festival is a rich cornucopia of activity, including winter sports, snow sculptures, and activities based on the traditional Québec lifestyle, such as canoe races and dogsled races. The Québec Winter Carnival is the largest winter carnival in the world today, and is third on the List of Top Carnivals after the famous carnivals in Rio and New Orleans.

In 2010, the two-year-old fledgling parade (launched as part of the Carnival in 2008) incorporated a huge line-up of giant helium balloons from Fabulous Inflatables. A team of 25 Dynamic staff members made the trip to Quebec’s capital city to guide the giants through her historic streets.

Inflatable Christmas Decorations for Your Holiday Event

Inflatable Christmas Decorations for Your Holiday Event

Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerDynamic Displays recently completed production on a giant reindeer inflatable for the Lion’s Club Kitchener. Design courtesy of our in-house artist–cute, huh?

How soon is too soon to be thinking about Christmas? Personally, I love the holiday season—not only is it a busy time for us here at Dynamic Displays, but I have a lot of leftover giddy anticipation from my childhood.

Why mention it in July? As every business person knows, real seasons begin about six months before the general public starts to take notice. If you’re an event planner, you’ve probably already started to make plans for the holiday season. If you haven’t, you should! Starting early will help you avoid some of the stress and pressure that comes with the winter months.

Check out Dynamic’s catalog of holiday balloons for a little inspiration. Helium and cold-air inflatable characters make cheerful additions to your holiday parade or event.
