Hundreds Plunged Into The Frozen 'Boro Beach

Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department's 16th Annual Polar Bear Plunge at SportsCom's 'Boro's Beach had police tape around frozen areas of the pool, while hundreds carried on the tradition in 24-degree temps.

The prior week's arctic blast dropped the number of jumpers slightly. This year park employee did not have to dump buckets of ice into the pool. Mother Nature took care of that with sub-freezing temperatures.

SportsCom's Superintendent Bart Fite noted that there was definitely something different this year...

He said that staff had been out breaking-up ice in the frozen pool so there would be areas in which jumpers could plunge.

Crowds started arriving inside SportsCom's gym at 8:30 Saturday (1/6/2018) morning for the popular ARCTIC ADVENTURE. Then at 10:00 o'clock participants and supporters took the trek to the outdoor pool.
