New Years Day for the brave of heart get out for a quick cold dip at the Lake Padden Resolution Run & Polar Bear Plunge. The run or walk starts at 11 am and the plunge is scheduled for noon. Lifeguards will be at the lake, as well as hot beverages, snacks and warm showers for those brave souls who make the plunge.
If your up in the north county you can take your plunge at the 30th Annual Birch Bay Polar Bear Plunge where hundreds of people come from all over the Pacific Northwest for this annual tradition! Participants come from as far away as Europe and Japan, Chicago, Detroit and of course, British Columbia to plunge in to the bay’s chilly water.
