Water Ski Days

Water Ski Days

June 23-26, 2022

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!
