Festival du Bois

I had lots of fun at the Festival du Bois – the largest french-canadian festival in BC. It’s held every year around this time of the year in Maillardville, which is in Coquitlam, BC, with the largest French Canadian (or Canadien!) population in BC. One thing I loved the most is the hot maple syrup candie, made by rolling boiling hot maple syrup on snow! SoooOOOOOO good. Charming Quebecois singing men were giving these out for $2 / bar! Yum yum
