Saranac Lake Winter Carnival

Amanda Carlo

The holidays are over...

And the long days of winter are among us. If you're needing something to break up the freezing temperatures and snow storms, you have to check out the 120th Winter Carnival from February 3rd - 12th in Saranac Lake, NY.

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is the longest-running event of its kind in the eastern U.S. Since 1897, it has grown into a 10-day festival that includes sports, performances, two parades and three sets of spectacular fireworks.

Over the years, the Winter Carnival has retained the warmth, charm and camaraderie of a community celebration. The Carnival – organized by an all-volunteer group called the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee – is a community-driven festival made possible by the efforts of many volunteers and sponsors, including Cape Air! The centerpiece of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is the Ice Palace, built by volunteers on the shore of Lake Flower's Pontiac Bay at the state boat launch.

Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois Welcomes You

Erin Hatzell

 Unveiling a new facility, and a new name!

Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois, formerly Williamson County Regional Airport, celebrated its grand opening on November 11, 2016 in Marion, Illinois. It was only fitting that the airport opened its doors to the public during its dedication ceremony on Veteran’s Day. The newly coined Capt. Robert W. Duncan Terminal is named after Capt. Duncan who served in the U.S. Navy during War II and the Korean War. Capt. Duncan also served as chairman of the Williamson County Airport Authority from 1980-2001. The name change was a well kept surprise to the general public, which is a symbol of thanks and gratitude to our American heroes past and present.
