About the Brigantine Polar Bear Plunge:
Brigantine residents, merchants and visitors always celebrate New Year’s Day. Sadly, it was cancelled for 2021 due to Covid.
The event has grown from a local event into a major fundraising effort benefiting Fisher House, a top-rated charity that provides housing and transportation to wounded military members and their families.
Last year’s event had more than 1,000 swimmers, 6,000 spectators and raised more than $70,000 for Fisher House.
The day’s events begin at 10 a.m. New Year’s Day with live music, refreshments, color guard and official merchandise for sale.
The Plunge, which is free and open to the public, has become a popular tradition with both locals and visitors to Brigantine and takes place at noon. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes with prizes awarded to the best costumes. Brigantine’s own Mike Riordan will serves as Master of Ceremonies.
The Brigantine Polar Bear Plunge, organized and operated by the Brigantine Polar Bears, A NJ 501-C3 Non Profit Corporation, raises funds through clothing and calendar sales, sponsorships and contributions.
