Carnival concludes with high

The winner of the grand raffle was Justin Warren of Bolton Landing, who won a 2010 Polaris 550 snowmobile.

Also popular were the children's activities - hosted at King Neptune's lounge - which included a visit by the Sesame Street character Elmo, she said.

The annual chili cook-off attracted a substantial crowd, Kokalas said. The winner of the contest was the Log Jam, with their black bean chili. Runner-up was The Village Blacksmith at Fort William Henry; and third was a tie between Mario's Restaurant and Holiday Inn-Turf.

Kokalas said her group had already begun to plan for next year's Carnival - the 50th anniversary of the fest.

"Overall, we had a very successful year - the crowds seem to get bigger every year," she said, noting that during 2009 and 2010, traditional activities were revived, and new participatory events were launched. "We're starting now to make our 50th anniversary an exceptionally good year," she added.
