Meet Your 2017 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Buttons
In keeping with tradition, the 2017 Winter Carnival buttons were designed by “Doonesbury” cartoonist Garry Trudeau, a Saranac Lake native. Trudeau has designed the button to benefit the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival since 1981.
The 2017 button features “Doonesbury” character Zonker holding a canoe paddle with a wildlife scene in the background. The design was inspired by this year’s Winter Carnival theme: “Adirondack Wildlife”.
The Winter Carnival buttons are one of the longest running traditions at the Winter Carnival and collected by many residents and visitors each year. You can get yours for $4 at the Winter Carnival headquarters at the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce (193 River Street), by mail (check payable to Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, care of Barb Martin at 230 Broadway, Saranac Lake NY 12983), or by stopping in at one of the local retailers below.
