Waterford Balloonfest 2017

Ready for colorful dotted skies over this pretty southeastern Wisconsin town? The 7th annual Waterford Balloonfest features over a dozen balloonists from around the nation through the weekend of July 21-23, 2017. The classic “evening balloon glows” are take place Friday and Saturday evenings, plus balloonist flight competitions which will highlight their amazing flying skills… which is tricky in a balloon! (Trust us, we’ve been in one.)

Craft and business vendors will show their wares and provide information on their businesses. Local food establishments will offer food and beverages, including many desserts. Another activities include a kids’ area with games, activities, and entertainment, a 5K run/walk, helicopter rides, and much more!
