1.11 Polar Bear Plunge at Barton Springs

January 1, 2011

Happy 2011 everyone! Here we go again, back to list item #1. Items like today’s are why I wanted to keep going with the list. There are so any Austin traditions that I just didn’t include in 2010!

For the 31st year, people who are willing to brave the brisk jump in the springs are invited to come take the plunge. We have it better than other people polar jumping around the country, as Barton Springs is a constant 68 degrees. In today’s case, the water is going to be warmer than the air temperature. In any case, don’t forget to bring a towel!

And like the Full Moon Swim at Barton Springs, today’s event is also potluck, so feel free to bring a dish to share.

Dominican Joe will have free coffee to warm you up and will be selling 2011 commemorative T-shirts.

When: Today

Time: 9:00am-2:00pm

Cost: Free

Happy New Year, here is to great things and great adventures!
