It's another 'Third Thursday' event in Little Falls, and this is a BIG one. Join the city as it celebrates everything great about this time of the year with 'Oktoberfest.'

Out of all the 'Third Thursday' celebrations we've heard of (throughout the spring and summer, and now the fall), this sounds like the MOST packed, most exciting one yet! We're talking about "Oktoberfest" in Little Falls, coming up Thursday, October 18th. This is the sixth year for the celebration and it's continued to grow as more businesses get involved, more activities and things to do are offered, and more attendees show up to take part in all the fun. We KNOW this year is going to be even bigger and better.

So if you haven't been to this Oktoberfest celebration (or any of the "Third Thursday" events), you're probably wondering what to expect...

Well first of all, it's a family-friendly event so you can bring the little ones if you would like to. Pumpkin bowling is back for 2018, and there will be crafts, games, and even face-painting for the kids. And new this year, according to a press release, is "Mad Science: Boo Bubbles, Skeletons, Slime" for the children at the Travelodge.

For the older crowd, there's "Sip N Shop" fun at Canal Place with hot cider, other refreshments, and of course special fall deals for the "shopping" part of Sip N Shop. Astarte Collective will be doing palm and tarot readings, they'll have other projects, and special treats and drinks.

Other events during Oktoberfest include a Zombie Run along the canal, a 50/50 Poker Run which includes stops at seven different bars, pumpkin painting, a free wine tasting at Ann Street Liquor (from 4pm-6pm), special "spooky" movie screenings at Valley Cinema, and even virtual reality gaming (and exploring) from The Shop.


That's not even all of it.

We did say it sounds like their most-packed Third Thursday celebration. You can get ALL the information by visiting: Think Local Little Falls Facebook Page. You can also keep an eye on the Oktoberfest 2018! Facebook Event Page for the latest news and details.
