44th Annual Lake Havasu Polar Bear Day

What a title! 44th? That’s a long time. What on earth is Polar Bear Day? Well, it’s quite an interesting event here in Lake Havasu City, AZ! Part of what makes us so special is all of the fun events we involve the Lake in. The Lake Havasu Boat & Ski Club hosts this unique event where you have two options: become a bear, or stay a chicken!

Come one, come all. Everyone is welcomed and invited to take a dip in the Lake and become a brave bear. Earn your patch! This event is really for fun, and community togetherness. Enter as a group and take the plunge together or join in with other groups for the dip. If you want to brave it on your own, you can do that, as well.

You must “bear” the cold to participate which means you cannot wear a wet suit. Swim suits are required. The good news is, you can warm up your insides by the heaters on the beach and even eat some hot soup to warm up the insides of you, too. The rules are simple; you fully immerse yourself into the cold water to become a polar bear. If you chose not to do the full plunge, you can just dip a portion in the cold water and be a chicken, and win the traditional chicken patch. It is all in good fun, and if you come out you will not regret the laughter and the memories you will make. This is a great way to start the New Year, and loosen up!

Who knows, you may find yourself showing up planning to be a chicken and becoming a polar bear! Or planning to spectate and end up participating. Come out and find out which you will become. Bring your swim suit just in case! Afterwards, stay and hangout at the beach for the afternoon, and even watch others take the plunge into the cold. Winners will be chosen for youngest girl and boy, and the best in show, as well as, the best spill. See you there!

Entry Fee: $8 for swimmers; $5 for chickens

When: Saturday, 1/7/16 from 12-4

Location: Nautical Beachfront Resort, 1000 N McCulloch Blvd, Lake Havasu City
