What better way to ring in the New Year than by taking a plunge into the nice frigid cold Atlantic Ocean water with your family, friends, and thousands of others! That’s right; it’s time for the 2018 Tybee Polar Plunge! This event occurs on Sunday, January 1st at 12:00 noon at the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion. Unlike other polar plunges, Tybee Island takes this chilly event to a whole new level. Each year they have a competition called the “Gang of Goofs.” The competition involves teams of 3 or more dressed up in their silliest, craziest, most unusually themed outfits to win the title of “Gang of Goofs” and win some great prizes! The "Gang of Goofs" parade will begin at 11 am at the base of the Tybee Island Pier. Winners of this contest will be announced after the polar plunge.
You must register to be involved in this year's Polar Plunge. The cost is $25 for adults and $15 for children (under 12 years). You can register online or you can register in person at the Tybrisa Roundabout on December 27 - December 31st from 1pm-4pm. When you register for your plunge, you also get a long sleeve shirt with this year’s logo on it!
