The Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce, WindDancer Balloon Promotions and the Balloon Federation of America are proud to announce that the 2018 US Women’s National Balloon Championships will be held in conjunction as a part of the 8th Annual Waterford Balloonfest located in Waterford, Wisconsin. The Balloon Federation of America’s Hot Air Balloon Competition Division voted unanimously to award the Championship to Waterford based on a bid which reflected the overall quality of all factors associated with an established event and festival.
The effort to obtain the championship was led by Ken Walter, owner of Wind Dancer Balloon Promotions who serves the organization as the overall Event Director. Ken indicated that factors such as organizational strength, flying area, community support, locality to major population areas, time of year and volunteer base are all considered in the award of the event.
The US Women’s National Championship will run July 18th through the 22nd. The 8th Annual Waterford Balloonfest will add additional hot air balloons to the mix beginning on Friday, July 20th and running through the weekend. For additional information, contact any of the following organizations:
