16 freezing photos and a video from the Sidney Polar Bear Swim 2017

Share

Hundreds of people braved this year’s Polar Bear Swim in Sidney to welcome in the new year with a splash!

The beach location off Lochside Drive has quickly become the go-to place for the annual Polar Bear Swim since blue-green algae found in the water at Elk Lake has forced a cancellation of the event the past couple years.

Despite how cold it was, it didn’t stop determined locals dedicated to taking a plunge.
