When: Sat., Feb. 1, 12 p.m. 2020

Picture this: More than 1,300 adults and students dash into the icy waters of Lake Champlain on a frigid February morning. Decked out in quirky costumes, adventurous teams brave the cold to join in the Burlington Penguin Plunge and Cool Schools Penguin Plunge supporting Special Olympics Vermont. Spectators are welcome to witness the act of daring, cheer on participants, and visit the Winter Village between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. There, folks find vendors, a costume contest and free Starbucks coffee, as well as food for purchase from Bluebird Barbecue, Cheese Louise and Taco Truck All Stars.

Price: $30 plus $150 in funds raised; preregister; free for spectators.
