Saturday, March 5, 2022: The annual Polar Plunge to raise money for Minnesota Special Olympics.

There was a costume judging contest.

Then it was time to jump into near-freezing water through a hole cut in the ice.
Even police officers participated.

SCUBA divers were there to assist. They got wet too.

Even Superman went for a swim!

Let me out of here!

It was a real crowd pleaser. Some 250 brave souls jumped in, raising $7000 for charity.
