Winter Carnival Committee Chooses “Groovy 60’s” as 2015 Theme

SARANAC LAKE – Members of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee have chosen “Groovy 60’s” as the theme for the 2015 Carnival.

 The theme was chosen from the top five ideas generated at the Committee’s March meeting which had been gathered from the public: Adirondack Fiesta, Beach Party, Groovy 60’s, Haunted Adirondacks and Prehistoric Park.

“Combining community and committee input, we are pleased to announce “Groovy 60’s” as the theme for next year.” said Eric Foster, Winter Carnival Committee Chairman. “The decade of the 60’s was a very significant period of history for our nation with many achievements, including landing on the moon, and was the birth of many popular music genres. It was also a great time of positive change and we’re looking forward to focusing on those aspects and having a very fun celebration.”

When narrowing down the theme ideas, Committee members weighed a number of factors, including whether a theme could fit well in the parade and the construction of the Ice Palace and generate suitable music for the myriad of festivities during the 10-day-long event. They also took into consideration several public polls, including the online poll sponsored by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise and the Winter Carnival Facebook page, as well as those who cast their vote with a committee member or through the Carnival's website, www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com.   

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival will take place on February 6 - 15, 2015.

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Promotion of Winter Carnival, Saranac Lake, 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.  For more information, visit the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival website at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com.  The 2015 Winter Carnival will take place February 6 – 15.
