Little Falls in particular is known for many great things such as rock-climbing and antiquing, but more than anything else we are known for our delicious food. Every restaurant, and every family, has a "special" recipe for soup that might be a secret recipe, or just a unique creation that has always brought a smile to those who enjoyed a spoonful of heaven.
This year for Christmas in Little Falls, we have decided to gather some of the area’s best soups along Main Street and around the community, such as at Dragonfly Fitness, for YOU to sip, slurp, and sample ... all to benefit charity. Non-profit groups, politicians and local restaurants will compete for bragging rights of “Best Soup in Little Falls”! Who will be the winner? We invite you to come on out and taste for yourself!
