RYE, New York (WABC) — An event was held at Rye Playland on Sunday as a way to prepare for the famed New Year’s Day Polar Plunge.
Rye Playland hosted a pre-Winter challenge to benefit the Special Olympics.
It is not clear how many people actually hit the sand after feeling the fall chill in the air, but more than 1,000 signed up.
The event used to be an annual one, but Saturday’s was the first in nearly a decade.
