Take the Polar Bear Plunge to start 2012

Posted by Geeky Swedes on December 28th, 2011

It’s a relatively new tradition at Golden Gardens Park – the Polar Bear Plunge.

The third annual plunge into Puget Sound is this coming Sunday, New Year’s Day, at 11 a.m. Unsure about it? Here’s what Patrick Loderhose told us last year, “The water tends to be a bit warmer than the air so it’s actually a couple of minutes of being really, really cold, then you warm up and the rest of the day you feel good,” Loderhose says.

We’ll see you there! (Fully clothed, taking pictures)
