The Longest-Running Water Ski Christmas Show.
We often get inquiries on show day (Christmas Eve) where to set up or to call you (media outlets) back. Please don't wait until show day. On Christmas Eve, we are busy preparing for the show starting at 5:30 AM. Then we have to be at the show site early to continue preparing and coordinating with sponsors and show participants.
You can see the extent of the show site on the page entitled, "How & Where to Find Us." Good filming locations are anywhere along Waterfront or King Street Park. To minimize line-of\-sight conflicts with public viewing, please be sure to reach out early for better options. Also, note that you have to arrive no later than 11:00 AM to coordinate and set up in the preferred locations. It is a very busy morning, so the show can start promptly at 1:00 PM (for the benefit of chilly and potentially wet children).
We are a transparent organization yet have one golden rule passed down for more than 30 year - no one gets personal acclaim. This is to show our focus on the community. We insist that you do not publish any personal names but only interviews with characters; e.g., Santa & Mrs. Claus. Also note that you have to come well before 11:00 AM to set up for character interviews. We start preparing on-site no later than 9:00 AM. Finally, if you need legal documentation, please contact Waterskiing Santa LLC in advance.
