Winter Carnival Gala Parade

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade, sponsored by Casella Waste Systems and North Country Community College, will be held on Saturday, February 8 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 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 "Myths and Legends" theme, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.

The parade is one of the most popular events during Carnival and it attracts large crowds. It is recommended that parade-goers arrive early to find parking and to avoid road closures in Saranac Lake. For more information about free parking and shuttles available, visit the Carnival's website at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com.
