Buy a Polar Bear Hat

Polar Bear hats are $20. All proceeds benefit the Lewisburg Community Garden. One size fits all. These can be purchased during the registration process. As supplies last, hats will be for sale at the Plunge.

Cancellation Policy

The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership relies on the guidance of the Lewisburg Fire and Rescue Squad to determine river safety. In the event of unusually high water or swift currents, the LDP will cancel the Plunge rather than risk participant safety.

Cancellation Policy: Any participant who has prepaid the registration fee prior to cancellation of the event will be issued a registration voucher for the next year’s event. No refunds will be issued. Questions regarding this policy, please contact the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership.


For questions regarding registration, please contact Lynn at lcp008@bucknell.edu or 570-577-1292.

All other questions, please contact the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership at lsterling@lewisburgpa.com.
