Hundreds of hearty souls gathered today at the Narragansett Town Beach to participate in the Seventh Annual Polar Bear Plunge sponsored by The Lion’s Club Sunday.
The money raised from the $20 entry fees will benefit the Jonnycake Center and other local Lion’s Club charities.
With unseasonable temperatures in the 50s, townies young and old donned outrageous hats and funky bathrobes, and finally unveiled all (well, except for their tropical swimwear) as they took to the icy ocean hootin' and hollerin' as they welcomed in the brand New Year all over again!
Check out our photo gallery of the Gansett community delighting in this very popular tradition.
