Live Like a Local: Tybee’s Polar Plunge!

This Friday, 2010 comes to a close and we ring in 2011! We here on Tybee love a good excuse for a party, and a new year is definitely a great one! So, ring in 2011 the right way on Tybee at the annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks show! The show starts at the stroke of midnight at the Pier and Pavilion, so don’t miss it!
The fun doesn’t end on New Year’s Eve either. This year is the 11th annual Tybee Polar Plunge! The Polar Plunge isn’t just a fun way to start the new year; it’s a great event for a great cause.

This event helps to fund $1000 scholarships for nursing students at AASU going for a BSN degree and who have agreed to remain and work in the Chatham County medical community.¬†Last year’s Plunge at the Pier and Pavilion saw about 1000 participants and 5000 spectators, so it is definitely a must see! Make sure to visit the Tybee Polar Plunge web page for more information on how to register for the fun. If cold water isn’t your thing, no problem! Come just to watch the craziness! We hope to see you on Tybee this weekend…there’s no better place to ring in a brand new year!
