Accepting King and Queen Nominations

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee is currently seeking nominations from the public for the 2019 Winter Carnival king and queen.

The king and queen selection is based upon volunteerism within the community. Candidates should demonstrate a long-term and broad-based commitment to making life more livable, pleasant, and enjoyable – both for the people who live here and for those who visit. The volunteer activities can be organized or completely self-motivated. They can be as diverse as organizing a major community event or as seemingly minor as shoveling a neighbor's sidewalk. The committee is seeking people who help others independently, not people who are in professions that help or care for others.

Each nomination should be submitted separately and must include the candidate's volunteer services history. It is very important that the nominations are signed by the person submitting them. Nominations must be received no later than noon on January 18. Submissions should be mailed to the Winter Carnival Committee, Attention: King/Queen Nomination, P.O. Box 829, Saranac Lake, NY 12983. They can also be dropped off at the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, 54 Broadway, or the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, 39 Main St. No electronic nominations (e-mail) will be accepted. If you have questions about the nomination, please contact Cherie Racette at (518) 891-3598.

Once the nominations have been collected, all past kings and queens are invited to an assembly which will select the new king and queen from the nominations. This meeting is on January 18 at a secret location.

The nominating materials are presented to the assembly exactly as they are received from the community. There is no pre-screening or editing that could influence the outcome. The assembled kings and queens are given a period of time to review the materials and then are called upon to vote. Final selection is by secret ballot and the king and queen are announced on the first day of Winter Carnival at the royalty coronation ceremony.

World Premiere of 'Ice Palace, A Love Letter' Movie
2019-10-08 - During the 2016 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival, New York City Filmmaker Mark Burns came to Saranac Lake to capture the process from start to finish of what it takes to make the carnival happen. That year, the weather gave us many challenges, and Mark's camera caught all the drama. We're excited that Mark’s film, 'Ice Palace, A Love Letter', will have its world premiere at the Lake Placid Film Festival on October 27, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
