Dive into 2012 with a splash this year, literally! Since 1920, Vancouverites have been celebrating the New Year with “The Polar Bear Swim”, a tradition that few have dared to try.
The event typically takes place at 2:30pm on the first day of each new year. Dramatic costumes and a memorial 100 year swim race are just some of the highlights of the swim.
Shake off your hangover and take a dip in English Bay, if you dare.
More information is available here.
