The quick dash into the water of Prince Rupert Harbour takes place on New Years Day at 1 PM. With events on Rushbrook Floats once again welcoming participants both in costume and those in but their finest of swim wear, as they usher in a brand New Year.
Rotarians will be on the Floats and surrounding area ready to offer up some hot chocolate and hot dogs for those taking part or watching from the shore.
Included in this years festivities will be awards for the best of those that take to the somewhat less than tropical waters of the North Coast, with Gift Cards to be awarded for best team costume and best costume.
Some photos of last year's Polar Bear Swim can be found from the Rotary Club of Prince Rupert archives.
