Best Costume

Get creative with your individual or team costume! Awards will follow the plunge. Judges will be watching during the event for the best costume. The winner will be announced after the plunge. Please keep costumes family-friendly or you may be asked to leave. No wet suits allowed. You may change into your costume at the event, but since the changing area may be crowded, we encourage you to come early or already dressed.
