GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Take to the streets and get some eats: Take a Bite is about to return to Glens Falls. The city’s annual downtown celebration of local restaurants with small-plate fare is set to return in July.

This week, the Glens Falls Collaborative announced that the Take a Bite summer food festival returns starting on Wednesday, July 6. Participating restaurants offer small plates priced between $1 and $5, and will be outside on Glen and Ridge streets to offer their local fare.
