Looking for a way to revive your senses after a hard night of New Year’s Eve partying?  Come out to the  New Year’s Day Splash, also known as the Polar Bear Swim.  An Austin tradition for more than ten years.

“It really is crazy, but it’s so awesome how everyone comes together to be a community event,” said  swimmer from last year.  Yes like a hurricane, or a fire, freezing your ass off seems to create fellowship among the sufferees.

So if your New year’s resolution is to have harder nipples, you won’t want to miss the Polar Splash Day Swim or whatever they’re calling it at Barton Springs.

Or if your resolution is to be a nicer person maybe you just bring everyone hot chocolate and you won’t even have to jump in!
