The wonderful coast of Tyre was the scene of Lebanon Water Festival's latest installment. Displays of water skiing were given to thousands of spectators who gathered on the city's corniche to watch an evening show Saturday and a daytime show Sunday. The Cypress Gardens Water Ski team came all the way from the USA to perform at the Lebanon Water Festival. The team has strong connections to Lebanon Water Festival co-founder Simon Khoury, who worked as Show Director at Cypress Gardens for many years. The skiers then began a display of show skiing, single skiing, barefoot skiing and wakeboard.Tyre residents were receptive to the show.The day show Sunday was met with anxiety from the skiers, as water conditions were poor, with some waves reaching over a meter high. A press release by Lebanon Water Festival said that between 12,000 and 15,000 spectators have watched the Saturday show, while around 7,000 people showed up for the Sunday event.
