OLDSMAR — Behold patriots on skis as the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team salutes America on Saturday evening at Tower Lake.

"We do three patriotic shows a year, and people love them," said Vickie Wilmouth, spokeswoman for the ski show team. She was particularly upbeat about the fact that the Tampa Bay team has just nabbed their 10th consecutive championship title at the Southern Regional Championships held at Tower Lake.

The free 45-minute performance is family friendly and features daredevil barefoot skiers and ramp masters, along with graceful formations of ballet lines, adagio and pyramid acts, all set to stirring patriotic music. And if you happen to miss this performance, don't worry. There are free shows every Saturday at 6 p.m. throughout the summer months.

A pre-show act at 5:45 p.m. features the youngest skiers who are learning to perform. And if the spirit moves you, they are always looking for newcomers to join the show or help behind the scenes.
