Duchess Amélie Godin-Gosselin announces some of the events taking place at this year’s Winter Carnival.

At the press conference announcing this year’s Quebec Winter Carnival programming, two teams faced off at Baie de Beauport to pelt each other in an exhibition game of yukigassen, the Japanese sport of organized snowball fighting. The game is one of several new activities that will be part of this year’s Carnival.
