The thermometer didn't crack the 40-degree mark on New Year's Day but that didn't keep hundreds of locals from running into the ocean as part of the 10th Annual Sons of Ireland Polar Bear Plunge in Asbury Park.
The bone-chilling event raised money for a number of local charities, including Sea Bright Rising, Lt. Dennis Zilinski Foundation, Impact Oasis, Horizons National and Providence Medical Clinic.
Locals shared some photos of their intrepid plunge. And, word has it that there were a lot of Rumson and Fair Havenites there as well. Were you there, too? Share your photos here on Patch!
