The video was originally posted to Diamond Lake SandBar's Instagram Page.
We spoke to one of the organizers who said he and a few other residents put it together, adding it's not associated with any local businesses or organizations.
He also told us they asked people to social distance and can't control everyone's actions. He said he doesn't think this will cause a large COVID-19 spread.
The event has been going on for several years now.
To date, Cass County has had 149 confirmed cases and 6 deaths.
