Content Description: 

An organization of business leaders naming themselves the "Mystique Krewe of Ka-Noo-No" created the Ka-Noo-No Karnival in 1905, which took place downtown during State Fair week around the Labor Day holiday.The Karnival had a Native American theme to honor and celebrate Central New York's original residents, and lasted until at least 1912. Various business and civic leaders would arrive on canoes via the Erie Canal dressed up as Native American characters or the "Royal Court."The organizers advertised the Karnival as the "Mardi Gras of the North." During the Karnival, many buildings around downtown were spectacularly festooned with lights, as were both Clinton and Hanover Squares.
