BRAINERD SKI LOONS WATER SKI SHOW SUNDAY! (July 16)
The Brainerd Ski Loons will be performing a FREE water ski show at Lum Park on Sunday, July 16th at 5:00pm! Come and watch human ski pyramids, ski jumpers, barefooters, and skiers being pulled 360 degrees around the boat! This event is great fun for the whole family. Concessions will be available. Please bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating.
The Brainerd Ski Loons were started in 2014 by president Christopher Dens and his wife and show director Mandy Dens. They performed two ski shows in the summer of 2014 at Lum Park to a crowd of over 800 people. The team performs a variety of acts including human pyramids, barefooting, ballet line, jumps, wakeboarding and many more. Practices are typically twice a week throughout the summer months with shows in July and August. “Water sports are such an important part of Minnesota culture and history, and we are excited to be starting a group that will continue to strengthen this tradition,” said Christopher Dens, co-founder of the Brainerd Ski Loons. “Water sports have also helped build an appreciation for the lakes that so many of us love.”
There will be three additional shows later in the summer. Upcoming show dates are Sunday, July 30th at 5:00pm; Wednesday, August 16th at 6:30pm; and Sunday, August 20th at 5:00pm. All shows are performed at Lum Park in Brainerd.
