Twin Cities River Rats Return to the Mississippi June 1!


The 2017 Twin Cities River Rats shows are scheduled for 7pm Thursday nights through August, and take place at 1758 West River Road (between the Plymouth and Broadway bridges).

The River Rats perform an hour long show combining various water skiing acts with skits and music. Acts include Barefooting, Pyramids, Doubles, and more. All shows are free and concessions are available.

6:30pm – Development show: River Rat members under the age of 18 and our new members get the opportunity to perform for the crowd before jumping into the “big” show.

7:00pm – The Big Show: The ski show is a 1 hour long themed-show. In between daring and beautiful acts on water, a storyline unfolds. Audience participation is encouraged!

8:00pm – Photos: Photo opportunities with the cast of the show, visit with the skiers, and even take a ride in our “triple-rig” boat.

Their home site is located just north of downtown Minneapolis on the Mississippi River. The hillside along the river provides excellent viewing for the best show in the Twin Cites. Grab a blanket or a chair and come on down! Directions
