Wondering what’s up with the Perilous Plunge this year? As with most things, it’s happening online, providing the same wacky (if not as wet) good fun as always while raising much needed funds for Redwood Discovery Museum and its uber valuable hands-on education for kids. See what the crazy and creative plungers have concocted this year as they post photos and videos of their dips, plunges, swims and more — to say nothing of their costumes — during the Perilous (Post a) Plunge on Saturday, Feb. 27. Visit www.discovery-museum.org/perilous-plunge.html or www.facebook.com/redwooddiscoverymuseum for all the fun.

Another Kinetic Cancelation

Posted By on Fri, Jan 29, 2021 at 3:41 PM

In an open letter, the folks behind the annual Kinetic Grand Championship, the three-day wild and wooly wheeled adventure across the land and sea of our county, have announced the canceling of this year's in-person Memorial Day weekend event. "The threat of harm from COVID-19 is all too clear," the statement reads, and organizers are heeding the advice of the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services' warning that not enough of the community will have been vaccinated by then.
