The 29th-annual Polar Bear Plunge will be held noon tomorrow at Wind in the Willows in northern Lebanon County.
The nerves-testing event raises money for Developmental & Disability Services (DDS) of Lebanon Valley, Inc. DDS is a 501(c)3 that empowers people with development disabilities to achieve more satisfying, productive, and independent lives.
Gates open at 10:00am. DJ Jim Payne will be providing the tunes starting at 10:30am and food will be available for purchase through Timeless Cafe. The plunge will take place at noon.
Tomorrow is forecast to be a mostly clear day, with temperatures expected to be about 50º around the time of the plunge.
Spectators are welcome and there is no mandatory admission fee (although donations at the gate are encouraged). Premium parking is available for a $20 fee by calling 717-274-3493.
Wind in the Willows is located at 35 Webster School Road in Grantville. Previously the event had been held at Willow Springs Park in Richland Borough. Here’s video from a few years ago, courtesy of WGAL-8.
