SARANAC LAKE -- Applications for the 2014 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade on Feb. 8 and for vendors are now available online at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com.

"We encourage people to get their applications in early so they can join the festivities of Winter Carnival and be a part of the Gala Parade," said Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Chairman Eric Foster.

There will be trophies for both floats and walking units in six different categories (Business, Civic or Volunteer Group, Youth Group, School Group, Independent Group and Animal Unit) as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best in Parade.

The theme this year is "Celtic Carnival," and parade participants are encouraged to start their planning now. Entries are rated on the following: theme (matches parade theme), sound system, live music, choreography, costumes, float decoration, creativity and unusual item.

All vendors are required to fill out and return a vendor agreement form to the Chamber of Commerce by Friday, Jan. 24. 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 Rob Johnson at 327-3071.

Parade and vendor applications can also be picked up at the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, 193 River St. in Saranac Lake. Completed applications should be mailed to PO Box 829, Saranac Lake, NY 12983.
