SARANAC LAKE - Buttons for the 2013 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival go on sale this week.
The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee announced in a press release Monday that the latest design, by Doonesbury cartoonist and former Saranac Lake resident Garry Trudeau, depicts Doonesbury character Zonker Harris dressed in blue trunks, swimming under water with a school of fish. The 2013 Carnival theme is "Under the Sea."
Trudeau has been creating the annual Winter Carnival button designs since 1981.
Buttons will go on sale this week at locations throughout the village of Saranac Lake; a list of stores carrying them will be available on the Winter Carnival website soon. The buttons cost $3 each.
The next meeting of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, in the large group instruction room at Saranac Lake High School. The committee will also meet Jan. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 at 6 p.m. at the high school.
