Tybee Polar Plunge organizers have announced a twist for the return of the annual New Year's Day event for 2021. You can join fellow brave souls at the Tybee Island Pier & Pavilion at 12 noon New Year's Day to take the traditional plunge into the brisk Atlantic waters of Tybee Beach. The twist is that participants have the second option of taking their plunge anywhere they choose. Bathers are being encouraged to send in their videos and pics to event organizers who will post them online. The annual Gang of Goofs costume contest will again be a major part of the Tybee Polar Plunge. Advance online registration includes a souvenir 2021 long-sleeve Tybee Polar Plunge 2021 featuring the event's polar bear mascot wearing face mask. Registration is open now on the Tybee Post Theater website.
