Thousands of people came out to English Bay to help welcome the New Year with a splash, during the annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Swim.

The annual event once again saw participants shake off the cobwebs of 2017 and plunge right into 2018 with a cool freezing cold dip in the water.

Many of those who attended the event shared their “cool” shots on social media.
