Lake Lure Polar Plunge

Polar Plunge, Lake Lure

January 1, 2016
Take the annual New Year’s Polar Plunge at the Beach at Lake Lure and freeze for a reason – to support local charities. If you’re not feeling that brave, come see the fun – there will be bonfires to keep you warm! The chilly dip will take place at 12 Noon on January 1. Registration is 10:30 until 11:30 AM.

There will be a costume contest, cash prizes, hot chocolate, games, and plenty of cold water. The cost of the Plunge is $20 and includes your Plunge Permit, a Plunge Towel to keep you warm and plenty of fun.

The after-party will have activities, toasty fire pits, hot chocolate and prizes to be awarded. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit our Lake Lure Fire and Rescue along with other first responders.

Prizes will be given for best costume, youngest, oldest and plunger who traveled the furthest.

Directions: Street address for the beach is 2774 Memorial Highway, Lake Lure. It is located about 27 miles from downtown Asheville. Follow I-240 East to Exit #9, Highway 74A East to Bat Cave and continue on Highway 74A to Lake Lure. Nearby is Chimney Rock Park.

For more info and online registration, go to the Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge.
