Think Local Little Falls will have their annual Midsummer Night’s Picnic at Sterzinar Park in Canal Place on Thursday, July 15, 2021, from 4:30 pm until 10:00 pm.

The event will have live music, a kid’s makers fair, a dunk tank, stargazers, and food. Laura Eysaman, one of the organizers of the event said, “We’re going to have airbrush tattooing, little flower bouquets, fairy wings, and the swords again.”

The dunk tank will be over in front of Ironrock Brewing Company, and Mike George Jr., along with several other celebrities will be in the hot seat, including each of the principles from the schools. Leanne Dooley, Maria Lindsay, and Joe Long will all be on hand to raise money for the Little Falls Community Outreach, will George has picked the Little Falls Micro Fund as his charity.

There will be live music as well with solo artist Lauren Nettler, who plays a little bit of everything going from 4:30 to 6:30, and the Dove Tones who will play from 7-9.

Eysaman said, “We’ll have the cardboard castle and Marissa Perkins is going to be doing the airbrush tattooing. The Boy Scouts are going to come and set up games and run those as well.”

She also said that there will be snow cones, picnic baskets from the Cafe at Stone Mill, pizza from Mangia Macrina’s Wood Fired Pizza, and Canal Side Inn will have a food booth as well.

The Art Door Gallery is also going to have a leaf printing activity for the kids.
