Description

Tis the Season for Freezin! Just because it is cold, does not mean we can’t have fun. Come on down to our First Annual Polar Festival!

We will start out with The Polar Run & Plunge. Come and sign the Wall of Resolution with your commitment for the new year and then dive into an ice bath coming out rejuvenated and committed to the new you!

Then warm up with our Chilly Chili Cook-Off! Bring your best Chili for a chance to win Trophies, Prizes, and Cash! Awards for top 3 and People’s Choice! If you are not into cooking, you can purchase a hand made chili cup (Compliments of The Pottery Shop) and be a judge while sampling each chili!

Hot Chocolate, Cider, and Food vendors will be present to keep you going.

Music, Games, Fun and Fellowship! Don’t miss out!

Registering for the Polar Run & Plunge has several benefits. You get the 2022 shirt, you are entered as a Judge for the People’s Choice Award in the Chilly Chili Cook Off, and you get a Free Drink of your choice!
