Looking for a bold way to kick off 2022? Whether you dip your toes, take a plunge, or go for the 300-yard buoy swim in the ocean, the Polar Bear Swim will get your blood pumping and skin tingling. After the plunge, warm up in the heated Annenberg Community Beach House pool, enjoy a hot chocolate, and grab a photo with our very own polar bear mascot.

Make the New Year brighter for someone in need. Small kitchen and toiletry donations will be collected to support the City's 100 HOMES Initiative, by bringing donations for the bathroom or kitchen, such as toiletries, sponges, dish or hand soap, paper towels, disinfectant wipes, or other items.
