Celebrating the Past, Present and Future of Waterford
The weekend will feature an array of historical reenactments, crafts, food, and entertainment
Friday, Jul. 19 - 21
Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy a weekend filled with crafts, food, and entertainment as the 46th annual Waterford Days approaches.
"Being able to allow everyone to see the unique nature of this region, some of the historical elements surrounding the area, and how we are still embracing that heritage is something quite special," says Holly Mihaly, head of advertising for Waterford Days. "We are also embracing the future and ensuring the survival of our town and local resources. Waterford is a warm and inviting little town and we want everyone to feel that sense of welcome during this event."
Organized by the Fort LeBoeuf Historical Society, the weekend will feature an array of historical reenactments, allowing attendees to experience various types of period dresses, blacksmiths and tradesmen putting on live demonstrations, and antiques both big and small displayed throughout the campus.
As far as entertainment goes, there will be multiple live bands — like the David VanAmburg Trio, Eliot Road, and JB Hobgood each day of the festival. During the morning and afternoon, festivities will include a parade, classic car cruise-in, and even a youth talent show. For the brave of heart, the nighttime will include haunted history tours of the campus grounds.
Local organizations, boosters, and vendors will be supplying all of the food for the event so that no one goes hungry while enjoying everything else there is to offer. So get out to Waterford and experience the past, present, and future of this community. — Symoné Crockett
