Falls Festival on Foot Sunday says forget cars and come out for healthier living


LITTLE FALLS - In an effort to get a leg up on a healthier life, the Falls Festival on Foot Sunday is aimed at getting people out of their chairs and cars.


To that end, a portion of downtown Little Falls will be closed to motorized vehicles and people are being invited to "come play in the streets."

Falls Festival on Foot is a physical activity event where all are welcome to walk, bike, skate, dance and play in the street.

The event is noon to 5 p.m. Sunday in downtown Little Falls by the Bank Square and beyond on the 100 block of East Broadway.

The event is part of the Live Better Love Longer initiative of the Healthy Communities Collaborative.

Activities include:

• A bike rodeo and bike surreys.

• A 3 p.m. Kiddie Parade for all ages. There is a decoration station for the parade.

• Diaper derby at 4 p.m.

• Nerf combat and other games.

• Live music.

• Street art.

• Street magician.

"Ditch your car that day and join us on foot, or foot-powered vehicles such as a bike, for a whole festival of fun, family, frolicking, food, funk and maybe even fame," organizers report. "Free from motorized vehicles, downtown Little Falls will be wide open for people to walk, bike, trike, skate, dance, play, laugh, smile and mingle, you might even say 'the way it should be.'"
