Polar Bear Plunge & Bonfire
Wednesday, January 1, 2020 @ 9:30am–12pm
What better way to ring in the New Year than with a plunge into the Schuylkill River? The Polar Bear Plunge will kick off at Riverfront Park with a quick dip in the river followed by a bonfire to warm participants back up. Registration will begin at 9:30 and the plunge will take place at 10:30.
If a plunge in the freezing water isn't for you, take a winter stroll along the Schuylkill River Trail and enjoy the vista as the community gathers along the banks of the Schuylkill River. Make it your resolution to join us in the park. Pork hot dogs with sauerkraut, drinks, and other treats will be available to purchase.
Participation in the event is free, but you must register. All participants must read and sign the waiver agreement witnessed by event staff in order to participate. Participants must be 16 years of age on or before January 1, 2020 to partake in this activity. Children under the age of 16 are strictly forbidden. Youth ages 16-17 may only participate with the signature of a legal guardian witnessed by event staff. Identification will be required.
