This coming Sunday and Monday will be two of the busiest days in the Mad-City Ski Team’s history. The team will be performing 7 shows over the course of 2 days in 2 different cities that are over 600 miles apart. In addition to the team’s normal Sunday night show at Law Park, the team will be performing in Pittsburgh, PA.
On Friday morning, a contingent of the Mad-City Ski Team will embark on the long road trip to Pittsburgh where they’ll be one of the major attractions at the EQT Three Rivers Regatta at Point State Park right in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. They’ll be tasked with getting the ski area setup on Saturday morning when the 2nd half of the contingent takes to the road to join them. The team is taking 3 boats, 2 floating docks and an equipment trailer stuffed to the brim with skis, ropes, anchors and other tools of our trade.
The team will be performing 3 shows on Saturday (at 3pm, 6pm and 8pm) and 3 more shows on Sunday (at 3:30pm, 6pm and 8pm) with the backdrop of the Pittsburgh skyline, Heinz Field and PNC Park and a state park filled with spectators and the entire downtown riverfront crowded with even more spectators. With over a 600,000 people expected over the course of the weekend, this will likely be the largest crowd the team will have performed for. Along with the ski team’s performances, the regatta also features the EQT Fireworks Fantasia, Powerboat Championships, Circus Orange, Sandsational, a Bass Fishing Tournament and an Anything That Floats Boat Race.
And as mentioned, in addition to the 6 shows at the Three Rivers Regatta this weekend, the portion of the team not traveling to Pittsburgh will perform our normal Sunday night home at Law Park at 6pm. Since a sizable portion of the team will be on the road, we’ve recruited some special guests to ski with us at our home show to ensure that our loyal Madison fans get an excellent water ski show on the 4th of July weekend.
