The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival, Feb. 4-13, 2011, is the longest-running event of its kind in the eastern U.S. Now celebrating its 114th anniversary, the Carnival began as a one-day event to break the monotony of the long Adirondack winter and has grown into a 10-day festival that includes sports, dances, performances, two parades and two sets of spectacular fireworks above the world-famous Ice Palace. Robin Beaulieu of St. Regis Falls captured a shot of the castle.
