Polar Plunge going forth this weekend in Stevensville
STEVENSVILLE, Mich. -- The snow may have calmed down, but it’s going to stay very cold this weekend.
It’s not stopping the Polar Plunge from pushing ahead, though.
“This is definitely the coldest plunge we’ve ever experienced,” said Chris Mason, co-owner of Watermark Brewing Company.
Our ABC57 weather app said it feels like 12 degrees, but Michigan State Police is going forth with their third Polar Plunge at Watermark Brewing in Stevensville on Saturday.
Medic One will be here to keep an eye on everyone, but so will a handful of first responders who are jumping in the freezing, outdoor pool themselves.
Don’t worry, you can still participate tomorrow if you feel compelled to make the leap.
“We can find a spot for you at some point or another to get in the pool and take the plunge,” said Mason.
Or, stay by the fire and just sip your drink as you watch others head into those bitter waters.
“You can spectate from our indoor, huge beer garden, watching people jump in while you have a beer,” said Mason.
Watermark typically doesn’t sell food, but will have food trucks tomorrow.
The Polar Plunge starts at 10 a.m. and the jumping begins at noon.
They have already raised $70,000 for Special Olympics Southwest Michigan.
