    Name: CANCELED -- 2020 New Year's Day Lake Lure Polar Plunge
    Date: January 1, 2020
    Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM EST
    Registration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.
    Event Description:
    Due to necessary dam repairs and the dropping of the lake from 12/1-2/10, we unfortunately need to cancel this year’s Polar Plunge.   We have all intentions of bringing it back in 2021 and will keep everyone posted. Thank you for your understanding!

    The 12th Annual Lake Lure New Year's Day Polar Plunge is back with the strength of a glacier as it returns "shoreside" at the Lake Lure Public Beach. 
    Join us as we run headlong into 2020 by plunging into beautiful Lake Lure on New Year's Day.
    Why would we do this? It's all to support our first responders of Hickory Nut Gorge. Doing something wild and crazy on the first day of the year is just a bonus!

    Prizes will be awarded to the best costume across several categories. Stay tuned for further updates, and be sure to follow the Lake Lure New Year's Day Polar Plunge Facebook Page!
