Tickets are available from Jeff Dickson until the opening of carnival on Feb. 3 and then will be available at headquarters until Feb. 12.

Unsigned posters are available and cost $15 including tax. They are for sale at Ampersound (52 Main St.) and the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce (193 River St.), and will be sold during Winter Carnival at its headquarters. Some prior year unsigned posters are still available for $5.
