2021 Winter Carnival Wrap Up

For Immediate Release
January 19, 2021
On Saturday, January 16, 2021, the Long Lake 19th Annual Winter Carnival saw major changes to the line-up and was able to host a modified version renamed Winter Carnival “Lite.”  The only coordinated event was the Cardboard Sled Races which were held with Covid-19 protocols in place. All participants and spectators had to register in advance for a maximum of 50 and there was no on-site registration.  Everyone wore masks and kept a minimum of six feet between racers and families. 
Race was only open to participants 18 and under and the winners for 2021:
Best Crash: Logan Hosley “Living Machine”
3rd: Kamila Stryszowski “The Rocket”
2nd: Morgan Delehanty “Muscle Tape”
1st: Quinn Giordano “The Mighty Eskimo
Best in Show: Matt & SJ Hosley “Maco”
Award-Winning Ice Carver Stan Kolonko from the Ice Farm helped create a drive by Ice Sculpture display sponsored by our local businesses including: Motel Long Lake, Tom Donnelly Logging, Howe May We Help You, LLC, Long Lake Rentals and a combo business sculpture by the ADK Trading Post and Adirondack Hotel. There was also a large Long Lake bear sculpture installed at the Long Lake Town Beach.
The Long Lake Ice Skating rink and sledding hill was open all day with Covid Protocols in place and the day ended with a Fireworks display at Mt. Sabattis with spectators watching from inside their vehicles.
There was no royalty crowned and no infamous Ladies Frying Pan Toss in 2021, but we look forward to next year which will mark the 20th and is scheduled for January 15, 2022. Save the date!
