Lake Lure Polar Plunge

Lake Lure held it’s third annual, and largest to date, New Year’s Day Polar Plunge for charity. As you can imagine, costumes are encouraged, hangovers required, and hot toddys consumed later. Even though the air temp was a balmy 47 F, the water was near freezing. Swimmers ranged in age from 13-62 and came from as far as Scotland, and as near as across the street.
