This year’s festival is a little different.  Due to COVID the main event is cancelled.  We are still trying to keep some of the spirit alive though! 

For this year we are focusing on distanced events.   House decorating contest, business decorating contest, virtual pumpkin decorating contest and yes the Old Town Hall has organized a distanced musical walk with many small musical stops for people to stroll by and watch!

Though there is very little going on for 2020, traditionally Waterford Pumpkinfest is a yearly event hosted by the Waterford Lions & Lioness to celebrate our community and help raise funds for community projects.
