Start the new year off with a chilly dip in the ocean on New Year's Day while helping to raise money for the Special Olympics. Maine's largest and original ocean plunge returns for another season on January 1st at noon. Last year this event had over 325 dippers and raised over $100,000 for Special Olympics Maine programs.

You can be part of this fun fundraiser this year. Dress up as your favorite super hero, or get a team together and create some costumes.

This is not just a quick dip in the ocean, this event goes on all afternoon with live music, a free buffet, and a cash bar! Registration is a snap. Just click here.
