The City of Little Falls is getting in the holiday spirit as we get closer to their Christmas celebration this weekend, filled with live music, a fun run, crafts and activities for the kids, and even a visit from Santa.

Saturday, December 8th is the big day. It's the day Christmas "officially" hits Little Falls. And it's a full day of holiday fun for everyone. The festivities start with a "Red Nose Reindeer Run" at the Little Falls Family YMCA at 8am. Santa Claus will arrive via fire truck to kick off the race. Afterwards, jolly St. Nick will head to city hall where your kids can visit with him and take photos.

And that's just in the morning of Saturday. These festivities are going to continue throughout the whole day. Other things you can look forward to include:

- A community sing-along at Ole Sal's
- Cookie decorating and crafts for the kids in the Community Center
- Pancake decorating for kids at the American Legion
- A puppet show at The Shop
- The Utica Zoomobile at Ace Hardware
- Holiday Craft Fair at Travelodge
- Live music at the Little Falls Elks Lodge

...And a LOT more. Like we mentioned, it's a FULL day of holiday fun. If you do head out for Christmas in Little Falls, make sure you keep an eye out for the "Moose on the Loose." This little social media "game" has become such a hit. So, there's a moose that will be wandering around during this event. All you have to do is find it, take a photo with it, and upload it to Facebook with specific hashtags.
