WEBSTER, Mass. - It was a spooky September Sunday on Webster Lake as ghosts and ghouls could be seen water skiing and getting everyone ready for the Halloween season.
It was all part of the second annual Dock-o-Treat-event. The Spooky Ski Show was put on by the Webster Water Ski Collective. The nonprofit aims to help people learn how to water ski. People ages 5 and up were able to put on a costume and take part.
There were all sorts of costumes, including a chicken, pickle, a jailbird, and even someone dressed as Eeyore from “Winnie the Pooh.”
“It’s great. It makes you feel good. It's a great way to end the summer,” Heather Jackman, Webster Water Ski Collective’s secretary, said. “You know, essentially this is what we're doing and can't wait to do it again next year.”
The nonprofit will be hosting what they call "Swaterski" in late November. Participants will put on wet suits and water ski on Webster Lake and then later on will snow ski on Wachusett Mountain.
The event will raise funds for the National Brain Tumor Society and Dudley-Webster Food Bank.
