The Long Lake Winter Carnival gets underway on Saturday, January 17th with a roster of fun-filled family friendly, all ages events. The small town atmosphere has something for everyone. The day kicks off with a bonfire, coronation, snowmobile parade (weather permitting) and the infamous award-winning Adirondack Cardboard Sled Racing Circuit. Families that participate in cardboard sled races in Long Lake, Indian Lake, Inlet, Oak Mountain and Old Forge are eligible to participate and win the big coveted trophy and go down in the history books.
Not up for serious circuit competition, never fear, we have the regular Cardboard Sled Races for all ages. Decorate your cardboard box and slide down Mt. Sabbatis. Prizes for speed and for decoration.
New for 2015 is the Wackiest Hat Competition. Every year visitors to the Carnival are always sporting the best outer weather gear, colorful, creative and whimsical and for 2015 we are celebrating with a new event. So be sure to look for your best, make your best, create your best hat. Details of the competition to be announced at the event.
