Winter Carnival Caravan

Winter Carnival Caravan

Travelers from the Maine-Quebec Winter Carnival Caravan (MQWCC) met with Consul General Hale VanKoughnett and Management Officer Michael Hackett in February. The Caravan, organized by the Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce, started their journey from Portage Lake en route to Quebec City for the Winter Carnival. The travelers stopped at St-Pamphile where they visited Maibec, a Quebec manufacturer of wood products, then the Quebec National Assembly and the Consulate. They stayed for the weekend to enjoy the Carnival and perpetuate the long time tradition of “extending hands in friendship across the border.” The first Caravan to Quebec started in 1957 and this year marks the 58th anniversary of the event.
