Well over 1,000 expected to take a dip on the beach at Essex Ave, next to the Margate Fishing Pier.

As usual, Robert’s Place in Margate will provide the before and after plunge ‘warm-ups’.

The Ventnor Polar Bear Plunge begins at 1 pm and happens on the beach between Newport and Portland Aves.

Wear a bathing suit, dress in costume, or come as you are and enjoy the festivities.

The plunge is a 27-year Margate tradition on New Year’s Day.

Margate Polar Bear Plungers will head out to the Essex Ave beach at 11:30. At noon, many brave souls will hold their breathe as they run into the icy waters of the Atlantic.

Due to massive crowds, Margate’s Polar Bear Plunge typically allows people to park their cars on the beach for this event.
