Nanaimo Boxing Day - Polar Bear Dip

There aren't really Polar Bears in Departure Bay.................

Honoring a Nanaimo tradition started years ago by flamboyant mayor Frank Ney, hardy souls can challenge the elements on boxing day at Departure Bay beach.

The 54th annual event takes place at 1:00 pm at Kin Hut with registration beginning at 11:30am. Participants are encouraged to put on their very best pirate costume for this great event.

In addition to bragging rights you will also have bragging rights by taking a dip in the chilly brine of Departure Bay.

The Shriner's will also be on hand selling hot dogs with the proceeds going to B.C. Children's Hospital Burn Fund.
