Polar Bears Unite in the Plunge

Brown-Forman Ampitheatre in Waterfront Park, plays host to the Polar Plunge which marks its seventeenth year on Saturday, Feb. 28. More than 1,300 people are expected to take a chilly plunge in the Ohio River from the docks below the amphitheater.

The Plunge is much like a walk-a-thon, with Polar Bears raising a bear minimum of $75 to take the leap. Every Polar Bear receives an official Polar Plunge t-shirt and Polar Bear Club Certificate. But participants who raise more money can earn even greater rewards. The top male and female fundraisers will be named King and Queen of the Plunge, and the top younger fundraisers will be named Prince and Princess.
