WATERFORD — This year marks the 256th year of the founding of Waterford, and the heritage of the small borough is highlighted during an annual festival that includes fun-filled activities, old-fashioned carriage rides, re-enactors, and cannon-firing demonstrations.

Heritage Days starts Friday, when concession stands and craft stands open in the gazebo park at 3 p.m.

The three-day festival that runs until Sunday officially gets under way with opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. in the park.

Events Friday include a strawberry social and carriage rides in the gazebo park and re-enactors in the ball park.

A cannon-firing demonstration takes place at dusk to wrap up the evening’s events.
