On New Years Day 2023, Provincetown will celebrate the sixth annual Polar Bear Plunge. On that day, an intrepid group of people will gather in the Johnson Street parking lot, collect tee-shirts, listen to some carefully selected music spun by our DJ, Chris Racine, and learn about the important work of the Center for Coastal Studies. At noon, weather permitting, we will run, splash and plunge into the waters of Provincetown Harbor. This charity tradition is part of the Provincetown First Light celebrations for New Years Weekend 2023. This event, co-sponsored by the Harbor Lounge, Yolqueria, Mezzeterranean and the 8 Dyer Hotel will feature warm-up cocktails and chili at Harbor Lounge. Registration this year is $60 and includes a t-shirt and a donation to the Center for Coastal Studies. There will be a DJ, music and a guest emcee, as well as Manzanita Coffee, Captain's Daughter's tea and the best group of people willing to run into the bay on New Years Day!
We are requesting that everyone wear water shoes to make sure that you don't cut your feet on the oyster shells in that part of the harbor. We will have some water shoes available to purchase. Please let us know on the registration page whether you will bring your own water shoes or if you request to buy them.
New teams cannot be created. Would you like to join a team?
This will register one person and includes admission to the event and a donation to the Center for Coastal Studies.
Each participant will receive one t-shirt with the Polar Bear Plunge logo on it. Please select your size. Additional t-shirts will be for sale at the event. If your size is not available, then we have sold out of it. You may select another size.
In previous years some participants have cut their feet on shells in the harbor. The organizers request that each participant wear water shoes or equivalent protection. Please indicate that you will bring your own water shoes on the day of the Plunge.
