Saranac Lake chamber of commerce springs its annual ice-out contest

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce has launched its annual Great Adirondack Ice Out contest.

An oversized chair has been moved onto the ice of Pontiac Bay in Lake Flower. For the cost of a $3 ticket, or two for $5, local residents can try to guess the date and time the chair will fall through the ice. The winner will split the proceeds with the chamber.

Tickets can be purchased at HomEnergy Services on Depot Street, the chamber of commerce office on River Street and Hyde Fuel locations. The last ticket will be sold Friday, April 11.

Updates and photos of the chair’s status will be posted on the chamber’s Facebook page.
