On this day in our history in 1967, five members of the Florida water ski team on their way to the World's Fair in Montreal made a stop in Troy, treating spectators to a performance on the Hudson.
They did the entire journey by way of water, sometimes traveling more than 150 miles a day.
The girls ranged from ages 12 to 27.
Their boat doubled as a living quarters for the long journey.
