If your idea of starting the New Year off is with a cold swim, come on out to this year's Lake Padden Resolution Run & Polar Bear Dip. The run will begin at 11 a.m. on New Years Day, with a run or walk around Bellingham's Lake Padden. The official dip into the chilly lake is set for noon. Lifeguards will be on duty,as well as hot beverages, snacks and warm showers for those brave souls who make the plunge.
Birch Bay will host their 26th annual Polar Bear Plunge this New Year's day. The front of CJ's Beach House Restaurant will be the meeting spot and the plunge is at noon.
