The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival will be coming to a close this weekend, and you’ll definitely want to make it out for Saturday’s carnival parade. Read on for the info you need to know.
The Quick Details
The parade is a crowd favorite of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival – it’s probably the biggest attraction in addition to the Ice Palace. This year, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade is taking place on Saturday, February 9th at 1pm at Broadway and Main Street from Ampersand Avenue to Lapan Highway. The public is encouraged to assemble along the route.
There Will be Trophies!
You can expect elaborate and unique floats, fun and wacky performers, and more. The parade performers will be judged in the categories of 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 best represent the 2019 theme of Prehistoric Park; there will also be a Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.
The parade will be streamed live online, and will also be available for on demand viewing. You can see it here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/qejSeUtnW9G
