Lake Lure Polar Plunge

Polar Plunge, Lake Lure

January 1, 2014
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 on the beach. Registration is 10:30 until 11:30 AM.

Hot chocolate and cookies will be on hand for crowds. Registration for the plunge is $20 and includes an official New Year’s Polar Plunge toboggan. Plungers are encouraged to dress in costumes (awards for best costume) and spectators are welcome and admitted free of charge.

Proceeds from this event will benefit The Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge.

Prizes will be given for best costume, youngest, oldest and plunger who traveled the furthest. Bring your water shoes and towel.

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, go to the Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge.
