Stone Harbor will host its third annual Shiver Weekend, built around a cold dip. On Saturday, March 9, locals and visitors will line the 96th Street beach in Stone Harbor to charge into the frigid Atlantic Ocean.
New for 2013, Shiver Weekend will include a parade down 96th street and Bonfire on 96th street beach. The Stone Harbor Shiver Committee also announced that NBC40’s Dan Skeldon will be the master of ceremonies the day of the plunge.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Cape May County Special Services School, Friend in Need and the Friends of Stone Harbor 9/11 Point of Peace Park. The borough is looking for sponsors.
“I think the Shiver is a great promotional event for Stone Harbor and the local businesses,” said Fred’s Tavern owner and committee member Jimmy Hand. “It’s an opportunity to kick off our season early and show locals and visitors that we are open and ready for business.”
A pre-plunge party will be held on Friday night, March 8 at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor beginning at 6 p.m. Participants can register and the party includes music, food and an auction. The cost for this event is $15 per person.
Registration for the Shiver is $30 for adults and $15 for students with Student ID. All who register before March 5 will receive a long sleeved Stone Harbor Shiver T-shirt. The plunge kicks off Saturday with a parade down 96th street promptly at noon. Judging includes awards for Best Costume, Best Team Costume, Best Team Name, the oldest plunger and the youngest plunger and the plunge will happen directly after the parade and concludes at the Women’s Civic Club at 96th Street and the beach.
Community organizations and food vendors will be set-up beginning at 10 a.m. at the Women's Civic Club, 96th Street and the beach selling food and other items for purchase. Bring your beach chairs because our community bonfire will be lit on the beach for the entire event also starting at 10 a.m.
