Water Ski Days

Water Ski Days

Each June!

Water skiing was invented in Lake City in 1922 by Ralph Samuelson. Each year Lake City celebrates the man and the sport. 

2022 is a big year for Lake City. We’re celebrating 150 years as a city, 100 years of waterskiing, and 50 years of Water Ski Days. So come to our quintessential summer party, June 23rd-26th, and be treated to live concerts, an arts and crafts fair, a gravity-defying water-ski show, a grand parade, a classic car show, and much, much, much more. We’ll have a full program up soon, but for now, mark your calendars. We cannot wait to see your smiling faces!
