Little Falls city crews put up Christmas decorations Tuesday, hoping to beat the cold weather. Joe Masog was elected to climb the ladder, while Jeremy Pekula (behind the ladder) and Pete Balaski handed him the decorations. City crews hung decorations on more than 100 street lights. Typically, the decorations are hung the week prior to Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season. Friday night, Nov. 29, Santa will ride into Little Falls during the 6 p.m. Santa Parade.
