Jump into 2024 at a Polar Bear Plunge at Angle Lake this New Year’s Day

January 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Polar Bear Plunge

It’s that time of year again – the holidays are over, the carols are fading, and the crisp winter air calls for…a freezing plunge into Angle Lake!

That’s right – brace yourself for SeaTac’s 15th Annual Polar Bear Plunge on Monday, Jan. 1, 2024, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

This isn’t just your average icy dip; it’s a community celebration, a charity drive, and a chance to win some awesome prizes, all rolled into one unforgettable experience.

Here’s more info from the Angle Lake Shore Club:

    • WHEN: Monday, Jan. 1, 2024: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    • WHERE: Angle Lake Manor Beach, 3417 S. 194th, SeaTac (map below).
    • WHY?: Beyond the exhilarating shock of icy water, this plunge stands for something bigger. It’s about unity. After a season of individual festivities, it’s time to come together, laugh, scream (maybe both!), and ring in the New Year as a community.

But it’s also about giving back. This year, we’re teaming up with representative from the Tyee Alumni Group to replenish the student/family food bank. Bring a cash donation, some non-perishable food items, or both – every bit helps!

Prizes, Glorious Prizes!

Think conquering a freezing lake isn’t enough reward? Think again! The more you participate, the more chances you have to win fantastic prizes:

    • Just for showing up to watch and enjoy brunch on the beach: One raffle ticket – welcome aboard, brave soul!
    • Any food or dollar donation: One ticket per – generosity gets rewarded!
    • Costumed attendee, even if you don’t plunge: Another ticket – this is your chance to unleash your inner polar bear (or mermaid, or yeti – we don’t judge)!
    • The ultimate plunge: One final ticket – conquer the lake and conquer the raffle!
    • We’ll also be awarding a prize for the best overall costume.

Remember, even though a lucky few might snag multiple prizes, each person can walk away with only one.

Join the Fun!

So grab your swimsuit (this is not a polar bare plunge, for goodness sake!), your warmest towel, and a generous spirit. Dive into the New Year, support a worthy cause, and maybe win a prize or two. At the Angle Lake Polar Bear Plunge, the only thing colder than the water will be your doubts!
