Think Local Little Falls had to get creative when it came to the Art Walk that was supposed to happen on June 18th. One of the ideas that they came up with is a scavenger hunt, led by Kimberly Sausa, who was one of several people who painted murals on windows in the City.

“We’ll start the hunt at Designs by Shellys and there will be a number of bees that are painted in other business windows throughout the City. People are encouraged to walk around and look for the bees,” stated Jessica Kelly with Think Local.

Sausa said that Elaine Cobb with Think Local proposed the idea to her and she said, “I jumped at the idea. I loved it from the very beginning.”

She had broken her ankle and so she had to invite some friends to help her. “I couldn’t have done it without their help. Our designs are all over Main St, all the way down to West Main, and even in Canal Place.”

If you have a guess as to how many bees there are, you can email your number to and everyone who gets the correct number of bees will be entered into a raffle where they can win a $25 gift card to any Think Local business. There will be a total of four winners.
