CLARENDON, Pa. – A total of 27 brave souls plunged into the water on Saturday afternoon at Chapman State Park, part of the Salvation Army Polar Bear Plunge as part of Winterfest 2022.

Saturday marked the most action-packed day of the three-day event with the fat tire bike ride, weighted canine pull, ice safety demonstration, sled riding, and of course the plunge.

Here’s a look at the Polar Bear Plunge, in which proceeds went to the Salvation Army.
