The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee would like to remind the community that the RSVP date for its upcoming fundraiser, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Summer Gala, is approaching on June 24. The Gala will be held at Harrietstown Town Hall at 39 Main Street on Friday, July 11 at 6:30-10:00p.m. Gala attendees will adorn elegant dress attire for a refined red carpet evening featuring dinner, open bar, dancing, live and silent auctions and more. The cost to attend the Gala is $75 per person (21 and over) and payment is required in advance.
The Gala will be an important fundraiser with proceeds benefiting the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee in support of the 10-days of community events planned for the Winter Carnival on February 6 – 15, 2015. The success of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival has always been due to the support and generosity received from the community which helps to keep this time-honored tradition alive.
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, community-wide 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.
