Annual Event, Experience, Parade, Waterfest



The Waterfest Celebration is an annual event that celebrates the city’s mineral water heritage with a weekend full of music, activities, food and fun!

The historic downtown transforms into a festival grounds. In the air are the sounds of kids laughing as they slide and bounce around the inflatable playground or take a pony ride. The smell of funnel cake and BBQ waft through the air. Vendors line the streets offering art, crafts, apparel, custom items and so much more. Enjoy the quilt show at the historic Hall of Waters. Live music entertains throughout the two days. As the sun settles below the horizon, pause for a spectacular fireworks show over the Hall of Waters.

On Saturday, join us downtown for the Annual Pancake Breakfast followed by a Parade featuring floats, celebrities, vintage cars, bands and dancing troupes. This is just a small taste of what Waterfest is like … you need to be here to experience the full effect!
