SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade, sponsored by Hotel Saranac, will be held on Saturday, February 13 at 1 p.m. The parade will take place at Broadway and Main Street from Ampersand Avenue to Lapan Highway and the public is invited to assemble along the route. The procession is a crowd favorite and tradition of the Winter Carnival, featuring many creative floats, quirky performers, community members and much more.
Parade performers will be judged in several classes covering businesses, civic or volunteer groups, youth groups, school groups, independent groups and animal units. Trophies will be awarded to the top two entries in each group that most conform to the "Superheroes and Villains" theme, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.
We were notified that the parade will not be televised for viewers at home as it has been in the past. We encourage the public to listen to the radio coverage that our media co-sponsors, WNBZ and North Country Public Radio, will be providing. We will also publish photos of the parade on our website at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com and on our Facebook page.
