RETURN TO DOWNTOWN!


Celebrating its 35th year, the Chamber's Annual Waterfest celebrates the city’s mineral water heritage. This three day event features arts, crafts, live entertainment, and water games for the kids, classic car-hot rod and truck show, parade, and much more. The EX-Factor singing competition will return, as well as headliner bands. New this year! A Carnival will be held in the Hitchlot off South street. There will be Laser Tag, Old-fashioned Kids Games, Bathtub Races and more.

The Waterfest committee is working on a new festival layout using Thompson Avenue and several of the city's parking lots as the festival continues to grow.

EX-Factor contestants can now audition via video! Send a file of a solo, duet or group performing 1 song to info@exspgschamber.com.
