The first Saranac Lake Ice Palace was built in 1898. Throughout the years, the Ice Palace has been a focal point of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival - a ten day festival every February.
Each year the Ice Palace is constructed on the shore of Lake Flower in late January and stays up as long as the weather permits. It is built with anywhere from 1,000 to 4,000 (primarily 2-by 4-foot long) blocks and have at times measured up to 30-feet wide by 90-feet long and 60-feet high.
