The event invites participants to jump — or even dip a toe — into the unheated pool, with costumes encouraged. Prizes will be given for best get-up and most funds raised. All funds will support Kids in the Creek and other environmental education initiatives from the Haywood Waterways Association.
Raffle tickets are for individual plungers only, not for teams. Raffle prizes include a gourmet picnic buffet for two at Gooseberry Knob, a full-day Polaris Slingshot rental and an inflatable paddleboard.
