So much has been happening in our City this year.

Little Falls never looks better than it does in the Fall! Surrounded by the hills, which are covered in all varieties of
trees, the colors can be stunning. Every Third Thursday our local merchants have many special
offers - what better time to come visit us and get a bargin while in the City?


The first light snowfalls have arrived in Little Falls. What better way to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas than to shop in Little Falls.

In part two of 'Story hour for Grownups', LiFT Theater will perform 2 short plays written and directed by Matt Powers. The theme is “New Play November.” These performances will follow my reading at Gansevoort Bookstore.

Click on our Shop Local Logo for Thir Thursday bargins and discounts and coming soon in early December will be our Special Christmas Shopping Bonanza!



City-wide Promotion Encourages Residents to Go Local

To kick off the holiday shopping season, the businesses of Little Falls will hold a city-wide “Small Business Saturday” promotion on November 29, featuring specials, sales and giveaways. Originally started by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is a national promotion to encourage residents to support their local businesses.

The businesses of Little Falls will participate in the daylong event, offering special discounts and a variety of giveaways. In addition, all merchants will give a canvas shopping bag to the first ten customers to make a purchase in their store. “We’re very excited about our Small Business Saturday,” said Elaine Cobb, chair of Think Local Little Falls. “This is an excellent opportunity to support your community and remind everyone that you don’t have to drive all the way to New Hartford to do your shopping.”

In preparation for the event, Think Local has created a directory of all participating Small Business Saturday merchants, available for free in various locations around Little Falls. For more information about Small Business Saturday, please go to www.shoplittlefallsny.com

"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight or for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendents will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819-1900)

"We believe that land-use issues should be guided by a set of smart-growth principles that incorporate centralized development, protection of natural resources and our working landscape, development of transportation options, and healthy neighborhoods where we can walk or bike to our destinations and have ready access to recreation"
