The annual Birch Bay Polar Bear Plunge attracts hundreds of people each year who brave the cool January 1 temperatures and run into the ocean. It’s a fun (and chilly) way to celebrate the new year. Even if you don’t plan on jumping in, there’s something fun about watching other people brave the cold water.
