Reminder about parade sign-up deadline

To the editor:

This year’s Winter Carnival is gearing up and promises to be another exciting celebration. If you would like to participate in the 2014 Winter Carnival Gala Parade on Saturday, Feb. 8, there is still time to submit an application … but you need to do it soon.

Applications must be received by Feb. 5. Entries are divided into several classes covering businesses, civic or volunteer groups, youth groups, school groups, independent groups, and animal units. Trophies will be given to the top two entries in each group that most conform with the theme, “Celtic Carnival,” as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best of Show.

Parade applications can be picked up at the Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce at 193 River St. or downloaded from our website at
