You may have heard of Polar Bear Plunges at other places in the United States. Basically, if a town has a body of water nearby, experiences cold temperatures, and has a cult of crazy people willing to jump in freezing cold water, you have a plunge.

Historically, the plunge is held the third Saturday of February. It is held every year. In 2012, the plunge will be held on February 18. People start jumping into the water typically at 2:00 in the afternoon.

It is a huge event that draws big crowds that do not even go into the water. Mark your calendar!
