Spend New Year's Day celebrating in Lake George... literally!
Every New Year's Day hundreds of true winter enthusiasts take a dip into beautiful Lake George. The Polar Plunge has been a First Day tradition since 1973. Revelers in bathing suits and costumes dash into the icy lake. But most don't stay in long!
Plunges are held in waves of 400 people, with the first wave entering the icy waters at 1:00 pm. Additional waves follow every 15 minutes. Water shoes are highly recommended!
Enjoy the parade, the Polar Plunge, and the fun family activities that will take place -
