Lake Minnetonka will be the site for the popular summer series several times this season.
The 9th season of "Oake on the Water" kicks off tomorrow on Lake Minnetonka. The Bayside Grille in Excelsior will host the popular Cities97 summer series and its host Brian Oake, with air time scheduled for 3 p.m. Forecasts for tomorrow call for clear skies with highs in the mid-60s. The public is invited to join in the series' 2011 opening, and Patch will have photos and coverage Friday morning. Tomorrow will not be the last time "Oake on the Water" visits Lake Minnetonka this summer. Several airings are scheduled to take place at Lord Fletcher's in Spring Park, the first on June 9.
