SARANAC LAKE – Members of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee have chosen 'Adirondack Fiesta' as the theme for the 2018 Carnival.
The theme was chosen from the top five ideas generated at the Committee's March meeting which had been gathered from the public: Candy Carnival, Chinese New Year, Frozen Fiesta (changed to Adirondack Fiesta), Totally '80s and Under the Big Top.
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 public comments and 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 2-11, 2018.
