Tybee Polar Plunge

long-logoThe Tybee Polar Plunge returns to Tybee Island on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014. Join thousands of people and take the plunge into the brisk Atlantic Ocean at noon on New Year’s Day.

It’s a great way for the entire family to start off the New Year! “Plungers” will gather at the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion

 “Gang of Goofs” Contest and Parade

The 2014 Tybee Polar Plunge also welcomes the return of the “Gang of Goofs” contest and Parade.

Sponsors are looking for groups of at least three or more to dress up in their craziest, wackiest and funniest costumes. The Goofs will parade in front of an esteemed panel of judges to compete for some great prizes.

The first place team will also receive the coveted Le “Gang of Goofs” trophy, which will be engraved with their team name and displayed at the location of their choice for an entire year.

Each “Gang of Goofs” member must also register for the Tybee Polar Plunge.

Registration for the Tybee Polar Plunge and the “Gang of Goofs” contest is $25 for adults & $15 for children (members of the Tybee Post Theater will receive a 10% discount) and includes a Long-Sleeve Tybee Polar Plunge T-Shirt.
