Polar Bear Splash
Category: Recreation Event
Date: Jan 1, 2018
Time: Register onsite at 11:30 am
Location: Parksville Beach

Polar Bear Splash

Since 1990 this event has attracted many hardy folk to welcome in the New Year in a very memorable way by running into the chilly waters of Parksville Community Beach. The 2018 Polar Bear Splash is organized by the Regional District of Nanaimo and supported by local services.

Safety of the swimmers is paramount; members of the Arrowsmith Search and Rescue water rescue team will be in the water to provide assistance and encouragement. Hot beverages and snacks will be available on a donation basis.

Parksville Fire Department firefighters / first responders will also be present to provide on shore medical-aid. With safety in mind, participants in the swim are being reminded to be careful of their alcohol consumption the evening before the swim.

The event attracts brave people of all ages with some dressing up in costume to take part. In addition, supporting those taking the plunge are the friends, relatives and spectators offering encouragement, applause, and even warm, dry towels at the end.

A reminder to bring a few extra items such as water shoes to help with tender feet, an extra towel or two, and warm clothes to change into.

The actual "plunge" takes place at 12:00 noon with registration beginning at 11:30 am. To find out more join the facebook event or call 250-752-5014.
