SARANAC LAKE – In keeping with the tradition of our community event, the public is welcome to vote on next year's Saranac Lake Winter Carnival theme.
Winter Carnival Committee members chose five potential themes at their annual organizational meeting at the Saranac Lake High School on Tuesday. Members pooled together a list of more than 60 theme ideas, some that were resubmitted from past years and others proposed from the community this year.
The themes chosen are: Under the Big Top, Wizards and Dragons, Adirondack Wildlife, Beach Party, and Adirondack Fiesta.
People interested in voting for their favorite of the five themes have many options, including contacting a committee member, submitting a vote on the Winter Carnival Facebook page or through the contact section on the Carnival's website, www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com. In addition, readers of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise can vote for their favorite theme in the paper's online poll at www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com. The poll will run on the Enterprise website from March 21-27. The deadline to submit votes via the other sources is April 10.
The Committee will be combining results of the multiple polls as a source of input from the community and the choice will then be based on many factors to make its final decision on the 2017 theme. The theme selection will take place on April 12 by the Committee and will be announced to the public soon after. The 2017 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival will be held from February 3 - 12.
