The annual Lake Lure Polar Plunge celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2018 and what a celebration it will be! This year’s Plunge promises all the excitement of previous years – and then some!
For one thing, Lake Lure Polar Plunge 2018 is back at Lake Lure. Last year, the lake had been drawn down so much the Polar Plunge was held in the pool at Lake Lure Lodge. While Lake Lure is still being drawn down, there will be more than enough lake left for a good Plunge!
Better yet, the forecast for this year is SNOW on New Year’s Day. Now THAT is a Polar Plunge!
Attendees are once again encouraged to don a cool and crazy costume for the Plunge. Prizes will be given for Best Costume, as well as the Youngest/Oldest Plunger, Who Traveled the Furthest, and a Mayor’s Choice. This year, all participating Plungers will receive a handsome, commemorative, 10th anniversary Lake Lure Polar Plunge medal.
The Lake Lure Polar Plunge occurs at noon each year. Pre-Plunge events for 2018 include the Dash & Splash Fun Run and the Tug-A-Plunge. There will be fire pits, hot cocoa, and music after the Plunge.
