The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade will take place Saturday, February 9, starting at 1 pm. The parade starts at Broadway and Main Street and travels from Ampersand Avenue to Lapan Highway. The parade features 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 “Prehistoric Park” theme, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.
The parade, as well as the Coronation of Winter Carnival Royalty Ceremony on February 1 at 7:30 pm, will be streamed live on the internet. It will also be recorded and available for on demand viewing at the same link.
