I have included a link to the local news article regarding this event: “Lake George's Polar Plunge lives up to its frigid name” in the online Post Star. A video and photo gallery is included with the article online. Over 1,200 people registered and took the plunge from the snow covered Million Dollar Beach.
Event registration is held at Duffy’s Tavern, once of the primary sponsors of the event. The polar Bear plunge kicks off the Lake George Winter Carnival. The event is usually held at Shepard’s Park, located on the main street of Lake George Village, but the side story this year is that the Shepard’s Park beach was closed due to ongoing operations to eradicate the invasive Asian Claim (CLICK HERE to view the blog site “Lake George Asian Clam Eradication Project“ on the purpose for and progress of the eradication effort).
A great family vacation with an active outdoor start of this New Year. We all wish everyone a very Happy and prosperous 2013!
