Polar Plunge at Chetola Resort

Saturday, January 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Some folks just don’t have good sense! But they do have good hearts! Watch fearless contenders take the Plunge. The Polar Plunge in Chetola Lake is one of the highlights at WinterFest. Chetola starts cutting through the layer of ice well in advance so Plungers can feel the full impact! Agonize with your favorite “Plunger”, most in costume, while enjoying the antics and one liners of our new plunge emcee, John Carter! Judges will award the famous “Golden Plunge” award to the best costumes. Plungers begin jumping at 10:00 am but get there early for good viewing! Proceeds will benefit local charities Western Youth Network and Hospitality House!
