With all of the outdoor activities of Fur Rondy (and how many involve costumes apparently), it reminded me of an annual event here to raise money for the Special Olympics – the Polar Plunge. This definitely fits into the theme of how our outdoor events get community out and involved, and can bring us together. Such activities are pretty unique to our northern climates, and I know a lot of communities do have their own polar plunge. It does make me wonder what equivalent activity they might have in hot climates? The Sauna Stayover?
