These water skiers aren't afraid to venture into Grand Lake St. Marys.
Advisories over the presence of elevated levels of toxic algae didn't keep this show from going on.
Lake Festival co-chair Michelle Emerine says this year's festival went much better than last year's when many people stayed away due to the algae and a much warmer festival.
This past spring the state took steps to reduce the toxic algae by introducing alum into the lake.
The feeling among festival organizers seemed to be that Grand Lake is open for business.
Grand Lake St. Marys parks director Brian Miller says camping has increased due to the lake festival and over the past few weeks boating has been on the upswing also.
Lake Festival organizers will be meeting next month to start planning for next year's festival.
