The Halloween spirits wanted to ski — and make a splash for the crowd.
The Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team performed a “spooky” ski performance, fully dressed in Halloween costumes while passing by Stonewater Grill, the Land O’ Lakes eatery on Bell Lake.
The water ski show team entertained eager diners, as they noshed on a late lunch on Oct. 7.
As “Gomez and Morticia” — the patriarchs from ‘The Addams Family’ — led the narrating, the ski team made several passes, while music played, and dozens of patrons watched from the outdoor and dock seating at the restaurant.
The team made several trips, as well as costume changes, but also did some of their traditional acts, such as a three-tier pyramid and a nine-person line, in which the skiers held the handle with just one foot.
This is the second time Stonewater Grill has had a ski show on a Saturday afternoon, and restaurant management said that based on the turnout and anticipation for each show, a third one will be planned.
Stonewater Grill is at 4422 Land O’ Lakes Blvd.
