Guide Boat Realty and Cape Air sponsoring fireworks displays at Winter Carnival

SARANAC LAKE – Guide Boat Realty, LLC and Cape Air have been announced as official sponsors of the fireworks ceremonies for the 2014 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival. The opening fireworks display on Feb. 1 will be sponsored by Cape Air, while long-time fireworks sponsor Guide Boat Realty returns to sponsor the closing fireworks ceremony on Feb. 9. The fireworks displays are well attended and a crowd favorite during the Winter Carnival. The displays are particularly dramatic since they take place behind the iconic Ice Palace.

"We are thrilled that Guide Boat Realty and Cape Air are sponsoring the fireworks displays. These are two of the most significant events for Winter Carnival, coinciding with the lighting of the ice palace to kick-off the festival, and the "Storming the Palace" ceremony to mark the end," said Cynthia Martino, vice president, fundraising chair, for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee.

The Winter Carnival Committee is actively seeking sponsors. Sponsors are featured in the Winter Carnival program book, website and Facebook page, as well as at the sponsored event. To become a sponsor, contact Cynthia Martino at or (518) 891-5197.

"Without the generous support of Guide Boat Realty, Cape Air and all of our sponsors, Winter Carnival would not be possible. Their generosity is the foundation of our success in keeping this time-honored tradition alive." Martino said.

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, Inc. is a group of volunteers dedicated to organizing 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.
