Winter Carnival featured by National Geographic

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival continues to garner national attention.

A photograph of the 2011 opening ceremonies of Winter Carnival, which was taken by local photographer Mark Kurtz, was featured last week on National Geographic's "Daily Dozen."

The picture highlights the fireworks, the ice palace and the Winter Carnival Court and is part of a slideshow featured on the world-renown publication's website.

Sylvie Nelson is executive director of the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.

"When events such as Winter Carnival are featured on websites such as the National Geographic, it brings attention to our wonderful community and our hope is that it inspires people to come and visit us," she said in a prepared statement.
