WHAT TO EXPECT
The Rochester Plunge is back for the 18th year! Throughout the day we’ll have something for everyone: Polar Plunge merchandise, Special Olympics Minnesota and more Sponsor Activations and, of course, the Plunge!
Stay warm and still make a difference! There are a variety of volunteer roles available that help support everything that goes on at your Polar Plunge.
Warm-Up to the Plunge
Whistle Binkies will be hosting their annual Warm-Up to the Polar Plunge event, a week before the Plunge, on Saturday, February 2nd and is looking for a few volunteers to help with all of the fun, games, and activities! Please contact Whistle Binkies for more information.
parking + shuttlesThere is no on-site parking available. A free shuttle bus route will be available from 11:00 a.m. through the end of the Plunge. Shuttle buses are free to all participants and spectators. Because there is no parking at the beach, only handicap vehicle permits will be allowed to park at the Plunge site. Limited parking is available at ROCHESTER PUBLIC UTILITIES and ROCHESTER PUBLIC WORKS, but there are no shuttle pick-ups at these locations. All others must ride the shuttle buses, which will run approximately every 15 minutes from the following locations:
