Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
This event is featured in The Current Summer Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond.
While a three-tiered pyramid of water skiers clad in outfits that could be inspired both by 1980s figure skating champions and the cast of Shrek is a complex triumph, the mission of the Brainerd Ski Loons is quite simple: support personal development, teamwork, and community involvement through water sports. Team members vary in age and are trained in the sport from beginner to performer. Last summer, the Ski Loons performed free shows to over 1,800 people in the idyllic Brainerd Lakes Area. In 2021, the team has four more family-friendly events scheduled at Lum Park to showcase intergenerational community pride and gravity-defying feats. (Lydia Moran)
