The Annual Polar Bear Plunge is always held on January 1st. Plungers take a quick dip, splash or swim in the frigid Chesapeake Bay.
Some feel the plunge is a way to cleanse their body and to welcome in the New Year; others may have just lost a bet!
Plungers enjoy hot cocoa and roast marshmallows around a warm bonfire. All participants receive a certificate and t-shirt. This event draws hundreds of brave participants and spectators.
Net proceeds will benefit Calvert Meals on Wheels, Inc.
