How did you start 2023? About 70 people gathered in Tremont, with a little over 30 brave souls heading into the ocean to welcome in the New Year as part of the Tremont Fire Department's 9th Annual Polar Plunge!

Air temperature was a mild 48 with bright sunshine while the ocean temperature hovered around 46-48 degrees when participants went into the water at 10 a.m.

There was a bonfire and plenty of hot cocoa to help everyone warm up!

The 10th Annual Tremont Fire Department Plunge will take place Monday, January 1, 2024 if you want to circle your calendar!

Thanks to Missy Higgins for the photos!
