Mercury Outboard Show

Located on north side of the Tower of the Americas this show was located on a small artificial lake and featured several performances through the day. An interesting note about the lake was the performing space was confined to the inner section of the lake on three sides. The outer section of the lake was used for the lagoon cruise.

Here’s a great Chicago Sun Times article on Tommy Bartlet, who created many water ski shows including the show at HemisFair ’68
