Whilst Waterville has always been seen as a place to spend one’s summer holidays, with lots to see and do in the village and surrounding area, it is also a place one can enjoy all year round. The Waterville Enterprise and Marketing Network group are hosting many events throughout the autumn and winter. Waterville has some of the finest walking trails in the world in its environs and this coming October, Waterville will host its first-ever ‘Waterville Walking Festival’. It will take place over the weekend of the 16th and 17th of October and will have lots of planned walks and fun activities for all to enjoy.
Waterville has always been a family-friendly destination and this Halloween there will be plenty to do for all the family during their weeklong Halloween Festival. Waterville is renowned for its amazing food experiences and fresh local produce and seafood. This will be showcased in November with a food festival supported by local restaurants and cafes. Christmas in Waterville is always a magical time, and this year Waterville will have an amazing number of events and activities for people to enjoy over the festive period. This year will see a return of the wonderful ‘Christmas by the Sea’ events and the network are hoping it will also see the return of their fantastic annual New Year’s Eve street party.
