Ralph Samuelson Sculpture Unveiling
July 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A new bronze sculpture is arriving in Ohuta Beach Park to honor the Father of Water Skiing, Ralph Samuelson.
The unveiling will occur at 4:11pm on July 2nd, 2022. It was at this time and on this date 100 years ago that ‘Crazy Sammy’ got up on skis in the waters of Lake Pepin in front of Ohuta beach.
From here on out, the city of Lake City invites visitors to take a “selfie with Ralphie” in our downtown, waterfront park!
