Despite our relatively warm winter temperatures in New Orleans, it still gets pretty chilly. On December 25th, 2014 (XMAS DAY) we will be jumping in the Lake Pontchartrain for a brisk swim. This is an all ages event. Come celebrate Xmas with our Third Annual PLUNGE.
Wear a wetsuit if you like. This whole thing is about having holiday fun. Because of the rocks and other debris on the beach, shoes might be a good idea. Otherwise, what you wear is up to you. Remember that swimming is optional, you can just watch and enjoy the beach or paddle board/kayak if you want to. Here’s the NOadventure post from the inaugural event or the 2nd annual event.
