SARANAC LAKE – Applications for vendors participating during the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival are now available online at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com. Vendor applications can also be picked up at the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, 193 River St. in Saranac Lake.
“We encourage people to get their applications in early so they can join the festivities of Winter Carnival,” said Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Chairman Eric Foster.
The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival will take place on Feb. 6-15, 2015 featuring a “Groovy ‘60s” theme.
All vendors are required to complete a vendor agreement form and return it to the Chamber of Commerce by Wednesday, Jan. 28. Any vendor serving food or beverages will also be responsible for securing an operating permit from the New York State Department of Health at least 30 days before the event. This permit must be displayed to appropriate officials upon request. For more information about vendors, contact Robin Johnson at (518) 327-3071.
The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Promotion of Winter Carnival, Saranac Lake, Inc., is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization of volunteers dedicated to planning and presenting 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.
