Williamsport celebrates annual Polar Bear Plunge

Maryland

Williamsport celebrated their annual polar bear plunge Tuesday afternoon.

Once the clock struck noon, everyone charged into the water. The plunge took place at River Bottom Rock and featured a costume theme. The event also had a big bonfire, music, and free donuts.

Participants that came racing out of the water said it was chilly, but a great experience. “I feel happy that I did it, but I’m extremely frozen.”

Town officials say they’re now preparing for another annual event, “River Rat Day” coming in February.
