Well, we bring in Polar Bears to the Gulf Coast and make them swim around while we chill. Joke! We ring in the New Year by taking a dip into the Gulf of Mexico at high noon.
Dippers and other participants dress up or just show up for this special day.
The Flora-Bama provides the traditional feast with black-eyed peas, cornbread, ham and more for those who take the plunge.
Purchase a towel & an Annual Polar Bear Dip shirt in the gift shop!
