Olympic parades set for Saranac Lake, Lake Placid

Two Adirondack villages will hold parades this month to celebrate the North Country's success at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Lake Placid will hold a parade March 16, honoring home-town silver medalist Andrew Weibrecht, and bronze medalist Erin Hamlin from Remsen. Also on hand will be two bronze-winning bobsled racers, Steve Holcomb and Steve Langton. That parade will begin at 5:30 in the evening and will conclude with fireworks over the Olympic village.

On March 26, a second parade will be held in Saranac Lake. That parade, on Broadway, will also include local Olympians and their families, as well as young athletes from downhill and cross-country ski teams. The Saranac Lake parade will kick off at 3:30 pm. In all, more than a dozen athletes from the North Country region competed in the Sochi Oympics in sports ranging from luge sled racing to Alpine Super-G.
