Stop By The 7th Annual Waterways Heritage Festival

Fall is the perfect time of year to enjoy all the fun near Waypoint Apartments. With great weather, beautiful leaves, and lots of fun festivals, there’s no better time to get outside and see all that the area has to offer. Join in the fun at the 7th Annual Waterways Heritage Festival. It’s just a short drive from Waypoint apartments and it’s completely free!

This exciting festival happens on October 8th and 9th this year, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Watch as exhibitors sell, demonstrate, and display all the unique trades this region offers, from beekeeping and baking to wood working and fly fishing. There truly is something for everyone at this exciting event. See a kayak demonstration or travel through the locks as you learn about the history of this area. Children are also welcome at this event, so bring them along! They can learn to make corn husk dolls or participate in a scavenger hunt.

Few festivals have such a huge variety of crafts and exhibits. Vendors at this event demonstrate basketry and candle making and their goods make great gifts for the holiday season! Watch as expert craftsmen shear a sheep, then spin the wool into yarn. Then learn about fly tying from professional fishermen. End your day with a blacksmith demonstration. There truly is something for everyone at this fascinating event.
