Make a splash on New Year's Day! The South Walton Fire District will host the annual Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day at Ed Walline Regional Beach Access across from Gulf Place Town Center.

In-person sign-up starts at 11 a.m. at Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar (across from Ed Walline Beach Access).
There will be a costume contest around 12:15 p.m. It's open to all plunge participants!
We will officially plunge into the New Year at 1 p.m. This event is family-friendly.

Cost of attendance for all plunge participants will be $20 per person. Children 12 years old and under are FREE! Every participant gets a T-shirt with their entry fee. Funds collected will benefit SWFD Firefighter/EMT Noah Collins.

You can sign up AHEAD OF TIME by visiting the SWFD HQ during weekly business hours. Bring your $20 registration fee and be prepared to fill out your waiver. After the plunge is over, join us back at Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar to celebrate the start of the New Year. You will have the opportunity to meet your local firefighters, lifeguards, and others in the community who are passionate about public safety. Everyone is welcome!
