Celebrate 50 years of White Rock’s Polar Bear Plunge with a chilly dip into Semiahmoo Bay on January 1. Join other plungers and 1,000+ enthusiastic onlookers for this New Year’s Day tradition. Costumes are “mandatory” and prizes will be awarded!
Registration at 10:30am and the official plunge takes place at noon! Meet at the WHITE ROCK east of the Pier.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary, there will T-shirts and commemorative toques for sale, and there will be coffee and hot chocolate available by donation. And there is free parking along the White Rock Waterfront until January 31, 2020.
