The reveal of the annual poster design for the scaled-back Saranac Lake Winter Carnival does not disappoint! Read on for details on how to get one for yourself.
The Fantastic & Flawless 2021 Winter Carnival Poster
Beloved Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau has outdone himself yet again with this year’s poster. It shows various masked Doonesbury characters, highlighting the Winter Carnival’s 2021 theme of “Mask-erade.” And, each mask depicts a different element of the Adirondacks, such as wildlife or snowsports.
He captured the craziness of 2020 and 2021, the Winter Carnival’s 2021 theme, characters his fans know and love, and payed homage to the Adirondacks. Could it get any better?
