Polar Plunge 2013!

It’s that time of year again! Mark your calendars and get ready to freeze your rear-end off! Polar Plunge Winter Festival 2013 is quickly approaching, and being a part of this event is super cool! (Did you see what I did there?)  To kick things off, there will be a Pre-Plunge Party, in the HEATED main tent, on Friday night, February 1st from 6p – 10p, featuring the DELOREANS! Bring your boogie shoes and dance the night away.

After a good night’s sleep, grab your running shoes and head on down to the Boardwalk, where you can participate in a revitalizing 5k. This event starts at 8:30 on Saturday morning.  After you run your heart out, you can cool off, catch your breath, check out the fabulous costumes (or compete in the contest; picture Mardi Gras on the Beach), and get ready to PLUNGE at 2:30!!!! Saturday evening, there will be a Beach Bash, in the main tent, as well. The band, BUTTER, will be rocking this event.

If you don’t feel the need to jump into the frigid Atlantic, feel free to check out the parties and attractions. It is a festival, after all. There is a $5 donation required to gain access to the main tent and the festival area on the beach.

In the last 20 years, more than 33,000 plungers have raised more than $7.5 million for Special Olympics Virginia. “Whether you run, plunge or party – or do all three – you’ll be helping to build a bigger, better and COOLER community for our athletes and volunteers.”  For more information about Polar Plunge Festival 2013, visit http://polarplunge.com/.
