You can burn off some of your Christmas dinner by taking an icy plunge on Thursday.

For those brave enough to take the plunge, the 43rd annual Boxing Day Polar Bear Swim is happening at Goose Spit Park. 

Registration starts at 11:30am and the swim kicks off at 12pm sharp.

There will be door prizes as well as prizes for youngest and most senior swimmer, most spirit, and biggest group participation.

And while it’s not ideal swimming conditions, it’s not bad for a day in late December.

Environment Canada’s forecast calls for cloudy conditions with a high of four degrees.
