After the Chilling, There Will Be Chili

The second annual Hudson Polar Plunge is happening on Saturday, February 23. The plunging begins at noon. To register to take the plunge into the icy waters of Oakdale Lake, or to support someone who will, click here.

This year, plungers and spectators can warm up immediately after the event at the Great Chili Cook-Off, happening just a stone's (or a snowball's) throw away from Oakdale Lake, at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street.

Everyone who takes pride in their chili--be it a restaurant or an individual--is invited to share their spicy, warming, and soul-satisfying olios. Register in advance by contacting Tamar Adler, and then show up on the day of the event with four quarts of chili in a pot, with a ladle and a label that gives the name of the person or restaurant who made the chili. The chili will be judged, and prizes will be awarded. 

The Polar Plunge and the Great Chili Cook-Off benefit the Hudson Youth Department and the Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue and Dive Team.
