PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Start the New Year right by joining in or supporting the 2019 Polar Dive at Island Park Beach on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.
This New Year’s Day event is being organized by John Vit and the Portsmouth Business Association.
The Polar Dive has become a New Year’s tradition in Portsmouth. This year’s event will benefit the Portsmouth Historical Society through donations and a raffle.
Come join your friends and neighbors at Island Park Beach, starting at 11 a.m. with the lighting of the all-important beach bonfire. The dive itself will be held at noon sharp and followed by an after-party at Tremblay’s Island Park Café.
If you’d like to donate items for the Polar Dive Raffle, drop off any raffle items to the Clements Market front desk marked for Michael and the Polar Dive Raffle.
Portsmouth Historical Society Board members and PBA members will be on hand at the beach from 11 a.m. on to accept cash donations.
Dive in or observe and support – your choice!
