LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - Two parades are scheduled for later this month in the Adirondacks to honor the region’s athletes who competed at the Winter Olympics in Russia, including medal winners Andrew Weibrecht and Erin Hamlin.

The Olympic Regional Development Authority say a parade will be held March 16 in the village of Lake Placid. In addition to Hamlin of Remsen and Weibrecht of Lake Placid, bobsled bronze medalists Steve Holcomb and Steve Langton are expected to be in the parade, along with other members of Team USA that competed in the Sochi Games.

Another parade is scheduled for March 26 in the nearby village of Saranac Lake. ORDA (OR’-duh) says at least five of the nine local Olympians are expected to participate, including Bill Demong of Vermontville, a five-time Olympian in nordic combined.
