Waterford Week events dominated the weekend, with Pupstravaganza at the dog park, a parade through town, and Touch-a-Truck, music, and fireworks at Waterford Beach Park on Saturday. The fun started again early on Sunday with a road race and went 'til late with a restaurant night and Waterford Trivia at Filomena's—the winning team included First Selectman Dan Steward and Police Chief Murray Pendleton.
