Waterford

Located in Racine County, this village’s beginnings were rooted in the creation of a dam on the Fox River supplying the necessary resources for a sawmill and a flourmill. Many festivals are held in Waterford each year. One of these events is the Waterford Hot Air Balloon Festival, an event showcasing the breathtaking spectacle of hot air balloons launched into the blue Wisconsin sky. This family-friendly festival features many other activities from food vendors to helicopter rides to folk dancing.
