BEST VALUE: STAY 3 NIGHTS AND YOUR 3rd NIGHT IS FREE IN CONDOMINIUMS!

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). 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! Proceeds will benefit local charities.
