The Irvington Penguin Plunge Is March 22, 2015, At 1 PM

This years Penguin Plunge, which hopefully signals the end of winter, will be held on the beach at Matthiessen Park, on the Irvington Waterfront, Sunday March 22, at 1 PM. A fundraising event at its core, in past years it has raised money for Irvington senior programs, open gym for teens, summer camp scholarships, the July 4th community fireworks celebration and additional revenue for the Park & Recreation Department’s budget. The March 22 date appears optimistic, given that we have had one of the coldest winters to date and the amount of ice in the Hudson River currently impedes all water access. If you want to give it a try this year, full details can be found on the event website at: https://sites.google.com/site/irvingtonplunge/

UPDATE: The Irvington Penguin Plunge is in postponement until its new date Sunday April 26.

Its that time of year again, when only the bravest Irvington residents and sympathetic non-residents decide to jump in the Hudson River for a good cause. This years event was previously postponed until March 16 and now has been postponed again until Sunday, April 6th at 1:00 p.m, presumably because the Hudson was so cold this year it actually froze over from shore. Given the current weather it can be assumed it is not much warmer now. You have a mere 13 days to get a team together or donate to the cause.

Irvington Penguin Plunge Returns For 2013

In what appears to be a now annual event, the Irvington Penguin Plunge is back for the second year in a row. It is set to start off at 11:30 AM on Saturday March 2, 2013 in Matthiessen Park. One might think that after last years plunge into the frigid Hudson River people may have had second thoughts, but no such luck. It appears to be just as popular an event. This year may be slightly different though in that, unlike 2012 which was a comparatively warm winter, we have actually had some ice on the Hudson River already. One would surmise therefore that the water will be even colder, however marginally, than the Irvington Penguin Plunge of 2012. Time will tell, but hopefully swimmers will not have to climb over shore ice to get into the water.
Remember, this is a fundraising event so the more sponsors you get for your “Plunge”, the more money will be generated for the Village of Irvington programs. Last years Irvington Penguin Plunge raised $76,000.
For a look at last years event, click on the link and associated video below. If that still doesn’t scare you off, a link to the entrance application is also enclosed. See you on March 2 at 11:30 AM.
