SARANAC LAKE — The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Gala Parade will step off at 1 p.m. Saturday and will be broadcast on local television channels 2 and 22 courtesy of Time Warner Cable. 

The parade will take place at Broadway and Main Street from Ampersand Avenue to Lapan Highway. The procession is a crowd favorite and tradition of the Winter Carnival, featuring many creative floats, quirky performers, community members and much more, a press release said.

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 theme, Celtic Carnival, as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.

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 midwinter festival. The 10-day event traces its roots to a one-day Winter Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club.
