Mercer Island: 2013 Polar Bear Plunge

Picture1Mercer Island Residents: It’s the 44th year tradition of the Polar Bear Plunge in Lake Washington on Tuesday, January 1st 12pm, at Clarke Beach Park. 7700 E Mercer Way.

Many different ways of doing it, tip toe in, or run full blast and jump in the frigid cold temperature of Lake Washington! Or even just coming down to cheer everyone on! Make sure you bring warm towels! The neat part to watch is afterward watching everyone get excited as they come out!! 🙂

Have a safe and good New Years 2013!!
