Dozens Plunge Into the New Year at McMurtrey Aquatic Center | KGET News

Dozens of residents took a frigid dip into the water at McMurtrey Aquatic Center to celebrate the new year.

Participants took a ride down a slide into the icy water, then swam 25 yards. Some jumped right in before getting back to dry land for some much-needed hot chocolate.

The City of Bakersfield Parks and Recreation Department hosted the 2022 edition of this Polar Plunge, returning after the pandemic sidelined it last year.
