Annenberg Community Beach House hosts a Polar Bear Swim

Splash into 2018 in the frigid ocean or a heated pool

2017 was a pretty crazy year. Perhaps the best way to wash it all away and reinvigorate yourself for 2018 is a bone-chilling dip in the deep blue sea.
On Saturday, the Annenberg Community Beach House hosts the city of Santa Monica’s inaugural Polar Bear Swim — which thankfully includes an invitation to warm up afterward in the beach house’s heated pool. S’mores, warm beverages and party games continue poolside.

Participants are encouraged to dress in wacky costumes and remember to bring their own towels.
They’ll also be Instagram photo opps with the event’s Pete the Polar Bear mascot (real bear not included).
