SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee meeting scheduled for April 21 at the Saranac Lake High School has been postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis. The 2021 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival theme selection would have taken place at that meeting and will also be postponed. A new meeting date has not been determined, but when it is, we will invite the public to attend to vote on next year's theme. Winter Carnival Committee members, and members of the public, chose four potential themes at a meeting at the Saranac Lake High School on March 10. Members pooled together a list of many theme ideas, some that were resubmitted from past years and others proposed from the community this year. The four themes chosen are: ‘Masquerade’, ‘Totally ‘80s’, ‘Worldwide Carnival’, and ‘Video Games.’ The 2021 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival will be held from February 5-14.
