Watch fearless contenders take the Plunge. The Polar Plunge in Chetola Lake is one of the highlights at Blowing Rock's WinterFest. Chetola starts cutting through the layer of ice well in advance so Plungers can feel the full impact! Agonize with your favorite “Plunger”, most in costume, while enjoying the antics and one liners of Emcee John Carter, WBTV news anchor! Judges will award the famous “Golden Plunger” award to the best costume.
Day-of registration and check-in begins at 8am in the Chetola boardroom (pre-registration online is encouraged and is less expensive). Plungers gather in the indoor pool area at 9:45am for a safety speech and then the party starts with the annual march to Chetola Lake. Proceeds will benefit local charities.
Participants begin jumping at 10am, but get there early for good viewing! Hot chocolate and coffee will be available for purchase to keep you warm and toasty.
