Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Workers are clearing debris from Wednesday’s nor’easter in time for the third annual Polar Bear Plunge in Stone Harbor this weekend.

Cape May County faced high winds, downed power lines and coastal flooding from the late winter storm.

On Saturday, March 9, locals and visitors will line the 96th Street beach and run into the Atlantic Ocean. This year’s Shiver Weekend will include a parade down 96th street and a bonfire on 96th Street beach. 

The plunge kicks off at noon plunge after the parade, and it concludes at the Women’s Civic Club at 96th Street and the beach. 

The Stone Harbor Shiver Committee has announced that NBC40’s Dan Skeldon will be master of ceremonies the day of the plunge. 

Awards will be given at the event; those include best costume, best team costume, best team name, the oldest plunger and the youngest plunger.

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.
