Hundreds of brave (and crazy) people take the 10th annual New Year’s Polar Plunge at Lake Lure and freeze for a reason – to support local charities. Many more come to watch the fun, complete with bonfires to keep warm! The chilly dip takes place on New Year's Day at 12 Noon. Registration is 9 until 11:30 AM. It's a very festive time with fantastic costumes and a live DJ.
