Photos: Perilous Plunge Back in the Swim

Posted By on Wed, Apr 20, 2022 at 10:48 AM

In person once again after going virtual due to COVID-19, the Discovery Museum's annual fundraiser the Perilous Plunge had sponsored supporters in colorful costumes leaping into Humboldt Bay from the pier at the foot of F Street in Eureka. It began with a parade down F Street with musical accompaniment from the Marching Lumberjacks, who also serenaded the plunging participants. Photographer Mark McKenna was in the splash zone for the cannonballs and kayaks. Enjoy the highlights in the slideshow below.

This year, the 21st annual Perilous Plunge, held Saturday, April 16 at noon at the foot of F St. in Eureka, might be more aptly named the Perilous Polar Bear Plunge, considering how motherlovin’ cold it’s gonna be. But the daredevils who leap for Redwood Discovery Museum's annual fundraiser are fortified against the chill by their superpowered determination to help local kids. The high-spirited Marching Lumberjacks band also keeps the adrenaline pumping. And then there’s the hot tub, Bloody Marys and warm lunch that awaits them after the plunge. They’ll be all right. Don’t miss the frigid fun. Head on down and cheer them on!
