A longtime Waupaca area tradition is alive and well.
More than 50 participants ran into Lime Kiln Lake on the Waupaca Chain o’ Lakes Jan. 1 for the New Year’s Day Polar Plunge.
As in the past, the number of spectators outnumbered the participants, as people lined the docks at Becker Marine to watch.
The event, a fundraiser for the Waupaca Fire Department, also included a water rescue demonstration, bonfire and tailgate party.
