Our Story

Will and Tiffany Threlkeld

Tiffany is originally from California and moved to Minnesota after meeting Will in the Army. They have been married since 2005 and have 6 children. Will is known throughout the community and once you meet him, you’re automatically his friend. His culinary school training brings a whole new flavor to the food at the Falls Ballroom.

Will and Tiffany purchased the Falls Ballroom from the Peterson Family in May 2010. Originally run by Al and Lucy Dietz, then Jerry and Elaine Peterson (daughter of Al and Lucy) and finally Tom (son of Elaine and Jerry) and Francie Peterson. While at the ballroom for a fundraiser Tom told Will that “he should buy this place”. Will, a stay at home dad at the time, tried to convince Tiffany.  Months later, while attending another event at the ballroom Tom ran the idea by Will again. Finally with some convincing Tiffany told Will to go for it. A year later they were both behind the bar learning how to run a ballroom. Tiffany left her job at Camp Ripley to help Will and the rest is history. They have been working side by side ever since. “It’s not the easiest job (working with your spouse) but we make it work.”

Will and Tiffany are both veterans of the Minnesota Army National Guard. They are dedicated members of the community and believe in supporting local small business whenever possible. You will find bread from the local Pete and Joy’s Bakery and sausage from Thielen Meats of Little Falls on their buffet.

Since becoming owners in 2010, they have kept the heart and tradition of the Falls Ballroom but have also been working to make it their own. The best thing about Will and Tiffany is that when you’re in the room with them you will always find yourself laughing. They’re the kind of people that will take the stress off your shoulders and pull your event off perfectly. They are committed to going above and beyond to make your event everything you’ve dreamed of and more.
