The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Promotion of Winter Carnival, Saranac Lake, Inc., is a group of volunteers dedicated to organizing an annual mid-winter festival.  This 10-day, communitywide event traces its roots to a one-day Winter Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club.  The Carnival honors its heritage every year by building an Ice Palace from blocks of ice harvested from Lake Flower’s Pontiac Bay, where carnival events have been traditionally held for generations.  The 2014 Winter Carnival took place during Jan. 31 – Feb. 9.
