I was near downtown Minneapolis Wed evening. Now this group I have seen perform at a couple Aquantennial events here in the past. I happened upon this area by mistake one day. I never knew they did the shows here at this spot also for free. So anyhow here's the link for those interested in seeing what it's all about. I was there Wed evening and they were praticing. I took a lot of shots and a couple video clips also. Now they perform for free every Thursday evening. I won't go tonight but next week I will and take shots of them performing in their outfits. Practice is without their outfits it seems. Here's a sample of the skiing. Will add more later also. Thanks for bearing with me today as I am in a blitz of starting discussions. Something I've never really done to this degree. HAHAHA! Thanks again. http://www.tcriverrats.com/HAPPY SKIING FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

That is awesome that they perform for free! I love to attend events like that. And yes you have been starting a lot of discussions lately and I myself love it because I can usually relate to all of yours so keep posting LOL. I can't wait to see the pics and maybe you could upload some video clips to you tube or somewhere? I know a site that pays for video clips if you are interested. I will PM you the link just let me know.

Yes they are awesome. I've seen them at city festivals never at their home field on the Mississippi though.

I think rehearsals are more fun to watch and photograph than the actual performances. Who knows what you might see? I don't envy skiers in your water up there. We have good ski shows at Cyprus Gardens here in Florida.

Oh the temp last night when I was there was around 65 degrees and I felt the water, it was a tad too cold for my liking. But I imagine after a minute your body adjusts to the coolness. I had a blast watching them last night. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
