2018 Polar Bear Swim

The Polar Bear Swim at Lakeside Park beach was a great sunny success, with more than 100 people going in the water of Kootenay Lake and with well over 400 people in attendance to cheer them on and enjoy the coffee, chili, hot chocolate and Hawaiian music. It was almost tropical. 

We want to thank all of those that helped to make this event a success. We can't wait for next year.
