Welcoming the new year was the order of the day for a crowd that turned out for the 2019 Olalla Polar Bear Plunge.
After the blast of a cannon heralded the commencement of the plunge, participants began leaping from the Olalla Bridge to the frigid waters below. Those who took the plunge were awarded with certificates showcasing their steely resolve and admittance into the Olalla Polar Bear Club.
Kitsap News Group’s Robert Zollna was at the event with camera and drone in tow. Here are some of our favorite photos and video from the 2019 Olalla Polar Bear Plunge.
