An alternative to the 93rd annual Vancouver Polar Bear Swim is the Penguin Plunge in North Vancouver. Presented by Deep Cove Outdoor and Deep Cove Kayak & Canoe, this frosty affair takes place at Panorama Park in Deep Cove on New Year’s Day.
To participate, register at Panorama Park on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 starting at 12:30pm and the plunge will take place promptly at 2:00pm. Enter the costume contest (judged at 1:30pm) and collect pledges for your plunge. Proceeds from plunge pledges support Seymour Art Gallery. Gary Comeau and The Voodoo Allstars will play live music in the park and refreshments will be served. Enjoy the first day of the year with the beautiful sights and sounds of the North Shore and support the community.
