Groovy 60’s: 2015 Winter Carnival

SLWC-FinalLogo4cOutlines2013The 2015 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival officially started on Friday, February 6th, and will close on February 15th. The 10 days of festivities include some of the big events carnival goers love and expect, like the Ladies’ Fry Pan Toss, the Rotary Club Variety Show, and, of course, the Gala Parade.

As always, there are some new additions to the schedule, including music and movies geared to this year’s 1960s theme, and, without fail, another new wacky Carnival event, one that involves rolling bowling balls across the ice.IMG_1877

We spent most of the morning around the incredible ice castle, with grIMG_1879eat additional ice sculptures (I really loved the ice VW kombi, straight from my hippie years).



Then wIMG_1887e went golfing. Yes, Arctic Golf was added in the lineup last year, so you can play miniature golf on a course with obstacles made of snow and ice. A great way to spend time with kids!


If you’re not fond of being outside with temperatures in the minus tens, you could still enjoy the multiple themed shows happening indoors at night. There are a lot of theme-specific events, like selections from “Hair”, the musical, or tributes by local performers to the music of the era in a show labeled as “Saranac Lake sings the Sixties”. And tonight is the “Get your 60’s Groove On” dance party at the town hall.

What a great event! For more information, please visit the Carnival website.
