Polar Bear Plungers Splash Into 2016

The 2016 Polar Bear Plunge was held at Ed Walline Regional Beach Access near Gulf Place.

Nearly 100 people jumped into the cold Gulf of Mexico water on New Years Day for the third annual South Walton Fire District Polar Bear Plunge at the Ed Walline Regional Beach Access in Santa Rosa Beach.

“This charity fund raiser benefits the South Walton Fire District Department Relations Committee and their efforts to support fire prevention educational programs and activities throughout the year,” said Fire Marshal Sammy Sanchez. “And it’s a great way to welcome in the New Year.”
