New Year's Day Lake George Polar Plunge!
1:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Every New Years Day hundreds of true winter enthusiasts take a dip into beautiful Lake George. The Polar Plunge has been a First Day tradition since 1973. Revelers in bathing suits and costumes dash into the icy lake. But most dont stay in long!
Plunges are held in waves of 400 people, with the first wave entering the icy waters at 1:00 pm. Additional waves will follow at 1:15pm and 1:30pm. Water shoes are highly recommended!
Sign up starts on New Years Eve from 11:00am to 5:00pm, and again on New Years Day at 10:30am at Duffys Tavern. Sign up is $10 and directly benefits The Springfield Shriners Hospital for Children and Lake George Volunteer Fire Department. Long sleeve polar plunge shirts will be available for $10.
Celebrate at the New Years Day Polar Plunge Party with live music from Dirt Cheap at Duffys!
Enjoy the live music, the 1st Day in Lake George, and the fun family!
