Sixty or so brave souls started the New Year with a daring Polar Bear Plunge into Puget Sound off the beach of Burien’s Three Tree Point at Noon on Wednesday, Jan. 1.

A new champ was crowned – Joey “Hollywood” Hodson – of Burien, who dressed up as an exuberant Lucha Libre.

Here are two videos of the event as shot by Scott Schaefer:
