ORANGE BEACH, AL- Thousands of thrill-seekers participated in the Flora-Bama’s, annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip.
The quick dip in the Gulf is a great way to get the blood pumping and wake folks up who might have done a little too much New Year’s Eve partying.
Water temperatures in the Gulf are in the upper 60’s. It felt much colder on the beach with a steady, north wind and temperatures near 50 at dip time.
This is the 32nd year the Flora-Bama has held the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip.
