The Hudson Polar Plunge happens just week from today, on Saturday, February 23. The ten-day forecast promises weather quite suitable for taking the plunge--partly cloudy with temperatures above freezing throughout the day.
There is still time to register to take the plunge or to support those already committed to diving into the chilly waters of Oakdale Lake. To do either, click here.

Immediately after the plunge, the Great Chili Cook-Off takes place at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street. A pot of fabulous chili is all that's needed to enter the competition. A hearty appetite and a taste for heat is all that's needed to participate in the consumption and the judging. Click here (and scroll down) or email Tamar Adler for details.
