L Street Brownies Annual Plunge 2013 Description

Polar Bear Plunge: Boston - Holiday Event | Special Event in Boston.

Nothing says a fresh start to the New Year like a cleansing dip into the frigid waters of Boston Harbor at the city’s Annual Polar Bear Plunge. Held every year on the first of January, the event attracts hundreds of locals and visitors alike who take the plunge into waters that will turn into icicles upon exit if the weather’s just right.

Many participants heighten the fun on the beach by arriving in costumes ranging from gorilla suits to Nordic Vikings. The nearly century-old neighborhood tradition is a charity event with proceeds going to the South Boston Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship Fund. There are no tickets for the Polar Bear Plunge, and besides the breezy dip, there is also plenty of family-friendly fun including food, games, and live music from local Boston Marching bands.
