SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. - Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau will do the honors Saturday when the Hotel Saranac, Curio Collection by Hilton, brings its iconic sign back to life at the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival.

Mayor Rabideau will lead the countdown as part of the official sign lighting ceremony at the Adirondack Carousel on Depot Street. The lights will go on at 5:30 p.m. The event follows the Hotel Saranac Gala Parade.

The Hotel Saranac sign has long been a Saranac Lake landmark, sitting high atop the six-story Main Street building. After falling into disrepair, the sign has been restored and brought back to its original brilliance as part of a complete renovation by Roedel Companies.

"People are so excited to see the progress of the hotel's restoration and lighting this famous sign during the carnival is a great way to share another major step for the project," says Hotel Saranac, Curio Collection by Hilton, general manager Michael Salyers.

Salyers will be among the Hotel Saranac and Roedel Companies representatives at the sign lighting event.
