Sunday, December 25th: Coney Island Polar Bear Club Christmas Day Swim

Christmas Day Swim
Stillwell Ave. & the Boardwalk, Brooklyn

The Coney Island Polar Bear Club is the oldest winter bathing organization in the United States. Every Sunday from November through April, they dip their paws in the icy Atlantic. Because of the calendar this year, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday and the Polar Bears will be swimming! So finish unwrapping your presents and come down to join in or just watch while safely bundled up on the beach.
