Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman, the North Hempstead Town Board, and the town’s Business & Tourism Development Corporation invite residents to the annual Winter Fest and Polar Plunge at North Hempstead Beach Park on Saturday, March 13.
“Besides being a great event to celebrate with family, friends and neighbors and engage in friendly and fun rivalry, the Annual WinterFest and Polar Plunge gives everyone the opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause,” Kaiman said. “I look forward to seeing you there.”
Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the plunge takes place at noon.
The event, which benefits the Special Olympics Foundation, features entertainment from WBAB and WBLI, a Nassau County Police Department static display, a free breakfast served up by Panera Bread, and children’s activities, including professional face painting.
In addition to Supervisor Kaiman, plungers will also include state Senator Craig Johnson and state Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel.
Individual or teams of plungers can earn fabulous prizes for raising the most money. In the “Battle of the Badges,” teams from the fire services and the police department will compete against each other for bragging rights for who can raise the most funds.
