The Polar Plunge will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Lake Junaluska beach. It features a âplungeâ into Lake Junaluska followed by a bonfire and hot chili lunch. Costumes are encouraged and prizes will be awarded. The cost is $25, but plungers are encouraged to raise additional money for the cause through plunge sponsors. Proceeds go to Haywood Waterwayâs Kids in the Creek and youth education programs.
