The Cedar River Shiver, Charles City’s version of the polar plunge, is coming up on Saturday, February 1, at 2 p.m. at the Riverfront Park boat ramp. Individuals and teams will have the chance to show their courage and creativity by taking a dip in the icy Cedar and vie for awards for best costume (both individual and team). Awards will also be presented for Oldest Plunger, Furthest Traveled Plunger and the True Blue Business Award for having the most participants representing a business.
The early bird registration deadline is January 24th, after which the registration fee will increase for $25 to $35 per person. Plungers will receive a commemorative Shiver blanket and cap for their efforts and be treated to free refreshments.
