SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade, sponsored by Hotel Saranac, will be held on Saturday, February 11 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 "Adirondack Wildlife" theme, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.
New this year, the parade as well as the Coronation of Winter Carnival Royalty Ceremony on February 3 at 7:30 p.m., will be streamed live on the internet for people to watch by accessing the following link: http://ustre.am/1yazO.
