Christmas in Little Falls Rocks the Holidays for 3 days!

Start date: December 9, 2022
End date: December 11, 2022
All-day event
Location: Little Falls, NY
Herkimer County | Little Falls Historial Society

Little Falls is known to celebrate with festivals, and the holiday season is no exception.

For over a decade, the City of Little Falls has helped make the holidays a bit brighter with an annual celebration held on the second Saturday in December. What began as Christmas on Main Street grew into Christmas in Little Falls. Last year, things went to a new level with the inaugural Celebration of Lights in Canal Place. Sterzinar Park was lit up in classic holiday style and even included a community tree lighting with a large crowd gathered to count it down!

This celebration has allowed folks to enjoy visits from Santa, horse & carriage rides, vendor fairs, live music, and much more. This special time has attracted both Little Falls residents and those from neighboring communities to our picturesque city for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Once again, the committee partners with the City, Youth & Family Center, and Think Local Little Falls to spread holiday cheer throughout historic downtown!

Mark your calendars and discover what is in store this year as Christmas in Little Falls Rocks the Holidays! Enjoy a WEEKEND of festive events, specials, and entertainment on Friday, December 9, Saturday, December 10, and Sunday, December 11.

November 25 - January 20 at the Herkimer College Cogar Gallery

Herkimer College’s Cogar Gallery will come alive with Krystal Einarsson's exhibit, Botanic Fashion, on display Friday, November 25 through Friday, January 20. A closing reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on January 20.

Einarsson, who hails from Utica, is a fine art photographer who currently resides in Schenectady. Botanic Fashion is a series that started at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic as a passion project. Einarsson says the project spawns from her fascination with unique houseplants and the desire to incorporate fashion-inspired lighting with the beauty of everyday plants.

Her work has been shown at the former Whitesboro Frame & Body in Utica; Thistle Be Perfect Artisan Boutique in Glenville; the YWCA of Northeastern New York in Schenectady; and West End Bagels in Clifton Park.

Botanic Fashion is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Cogar Gallery is located inside the main entrance to the Robert McLaughlin College Center. For more information, visit www.herkimer.edu/cogar.
