An artist puts finishing touches to his snow sculpture of toboggan riders at the entrance to Dufferin Terrace. 

Dufferin Terrace is buzzing with Winter Carnival activities and the main attraction is the historical toboggan slide or glissade. Located on the picturesque boardwalk overlooking the St. Lawrence River beside the world-famous Château Frontenac, the unique slide with three tracks attracts thousands of locals and tourists every year.
