Winter Carnival Gala Parade

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade will be held on Saturday, February 9 at 1 p.m. The parade will take place at Broadway and Main Street from Ampersand Avenue to Lapan Highway and the public is invited to assemble along the route. The procession is a crowd favorite and tradition of the Winter Carnival, featuring many creative floats, quirky performers, community members and more.

Parade performers will be judged in several classes covering businesses, civic or volunteer groups, youth groups, school groups, independent groups and animal units.  Trophies will be awarded to the top two entries in each group that most conform to the “Prehistoric Park” theme, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.
The parade, as well as the Coronation of Winter Carnival Royalty Ceremony on February 1 at 7:30 p.m., will be streamed live on the internet for people to watch by accessing this online link. It will also be recorded and available for on demand viewing at the same link.

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Promotion of Winter Carnival, Saranac Lake, Inc., is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization of volunteers dedicated to planning and presenting an annual mid-winter festival.  This 10-day, communitywide event traces its roots to a one-day Winter Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club.  The Carnival honors its heritage every year by building an Ice Palace from blocks of ice harvested from Lake Flower’s Pontiac Bay, where carnival events have been traditionally held for generations.  For more information, visit the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival website.  The 2019 Winter Carnival will take place February 1 – 10.
