Little Falls is known for their events that they put on to bring their community together. The third Thursday of every month, the community has come together for concerts, picnics, walks, festivals and more. This Thursday, Think Local Little Falls will be hosting a pizza challenge.

For the price of a $5 ticket, you can sample one party sized slice from Mark's Pizzeria, Ruggiero’s Trattoria, Ed’s Pizza Place, Italian Feast, and Pizza Boys in Little Falls between 4:00 and 700 this Thursday. Pizza isn't going to be the only thing you can enjoy. Ticket holders can also participate in desert sampling at Il Café. If you sample from all 5 pizzerias and get your ticket stamped, you can cast your vote for your favorite pizza at Il Café by 7:30 to help name this year's Pizza Challenge Champion. Will Ed's Pizza Place hold their title from last year? You can help decide that!

There will be numerous activities and specials taking place along side the Pizza Challenge. Several buskers will be performing along Main Street to provide music, the PTC folks will be painting mustaches for a small fee and selling pizza scented smencils to help everyone get into the Italian spirit, and Ann Street Liquor is offering a wine tasting from 4 pm to 6 pm featuring wines from Italy.

Valley Cinema will be showing a free movie at 7:00. In addition to all the fun, a voter registration booth will be available in front of the Community Center as well in order to give those who have not registered to vote an opportunity to do so.
