Kearney’s Santa Claus charity waterski show returns for its seventh year

Get ready for Kearney, Ont.’s most anticipated event of the season; the 7th Annual Santa Claus Charity Waterski Show

Santa and his elves are taking a break from toy-making to defy gravity, dance along icy wakes, glide along the water, and showcase their best waterskiing, barefooting, and wakeboarding skills. The event is taking place on November 4 at 1:00 p.m. at Mirror Bay. Johnny Kennedy will be performing live on the dock before Santa hits the water. Be sure to arrive early to secure a front-row viewing spot because residents of Kearney and surrounding areas are already gearing up for the event. 

The Lions Club Food Drive is raising cash and collecting non-perishable food to support the Burk’s Falls and District Food Bank. Rather than paying a set admission for the show, you can simply give a cash donation, bring non-perishable food items, or send an e-transfer to

Last year, the Lions Club Food Drive received 3,000 pounds of food and over $5,000 in cash donations. Blair Ballantyne, president of Kearney Lions Club, says that the Burk’s Falls and District Food Bank is in dire need of support because donations are at an all-time low. That’s why, this year, the Food Bank is challenging visitors to raise $7,000 in donations for families in need during the holiday season.

So, wat-er you waiting for? Bring your friends and family to Kearney’s 7th Annual Santa Claus Charity Waterski Show.
