POLAR PLUNGE

The Polar Plunge in Chetola Lake is one of the highlights of WinterFest. Enjoy the antics of costumed jumpers and the accompanying one liners of Emcee John Carter, WBTV news anchor. Judges will award the famous “Golden Plunger” award to the best costume. Day-of registration and check-in begins at 9am (pre-registration online is encouraged) in the Chetola Recreation Center, 2nd Floor. Plungers gather in the indoor pool area at 9:30am for a safety speech and then the party starts with the annual march to Chetola Lake. Participants begin jumping at 10am, but get there early for good viewing! 
Registration: $35. Proceeds will benefit local charities. The first 75 plungers to register will receive a “Freezin’ for a Reason" WinterFest Fleece Blanket. 

Click here to register online. 

The line to register on the morning of the event is always long. We highly encourage you to register and pay online early, and then all you have to do on the day-of is check in!
**Absolutely no one under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be allowed to participate in the plunge.
