Vancouver Polar Bear Swim 2010

DH Vancouver Staff Dec 31, 2009 4:56 pm

This year marks the 90th year in which participants will take the plunge into English Bay on New Years day. Yes what else can we be talking about but the annual polar bear swim. Thousands will gather (some of them will be in costumes) to take part in one of the worlds largest polar bear swims. Another highlight of the event is Peter Pantages (founder of Polar Bear Club) Memorial 100 yard swim. Be sure to stick around for that.

What better cure from your NYE hangover then a cold dip in English Bay. The event is free but you must register between 12:30 and 2:30 in front of the English Bay Bathhouse on January 1st.

  • Where: English Bay @ 2:30 pm, registration begins @ 12:30
