The Little Falls Business Association “LittleFallsBiz” held their third annual block party recently on Paterson Avenue and Main Street on June 13. Cloudy weather didn’t put a damper on the festivities, with many local businesses coming out to showcase their businesses. Attendees were treated to great food and information on the business, with fun activities for children, such as face-painting and balloon animals. An apple pie eating contest was also the highlight of the evening, where Mayor James Damiano and Police Chief Steven Post went head-to-head.
According to Karen Winick, president of LittleFallsBiz, the weather kept some away but the rain held off and those who came had a great time. Winink is also co-owner of Pencilworks Studio, located at 96 Main Street.
“The highlight was the pie eating contest between our mayor and police chief, with the chief edging out the mayor this year ” she said. “It was all great fun! Everyone who attended really enjoyed themselves.”
Winick added that the association appreciated many of the local businesses who donated to the event, such as Shop Rite of Little Falls that donated the apple pies and Lakeland Bank, located at 86-88 Main Street, supplying live DJ music. Some restaurants on hand to supply food were La Brace Seafood, located at 77 Main Street and Casa Arturo Bistro, located at 75 Main Street,
“It’s really a nice event that began three years ago. We’re looking forward to running it again next year.”
