The Cabrillo Beach Polar Bears will be showing their heartiness as they jump into the waters of Cabrillo Beach this weekend. The weather report for Sunday is predicted to be a toasty high of 76° so the water temperature should be around 58°.

The fun starts at 11:30 Sunday, January 1st, for the crowning of the new King and Queen of the Polar Bears followed by the first swim (or dip) of the new year at noon.

Free coffee, hot cocoa, cupcakes and cookies made by the Lady Polar Bears will be supplied for participants.
