30th Annual Polar Bear Dip


Watch more than 100 brave individuals dive, backflip, and belly flop into the freezing waters of the St. Lawrence River in Northern New York's Thousand Islands region. It's one of the area's most popular winter events, drawing visitors from far away to see the costumed divers take the plunge in sight of the famous Boldt Castle. Divers raise money for the local River Hospital, plus it's a good reason to visit in February!
