If you go

The 16th annual Polar Bear Plunge, sponsored by the Maryland State Police to raise money for Special Olympics Maryland, is set for Saturday at Sandy Point State Park, off U.S. 50 just west of the Bay Bridge. Plunges are set for 11 a.m. (family plunge), 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Plungers must gather at least $50 in pledges to participate.

In addition, two plunges are set for Friday: Frigid Friday (noon), for school groups; and a Police Plunge (1 p.m.), in which about 350 police officers will dive in.

Plungefest, a series of events surrounding the plunge, begins at 8 a.m. Saturday. Offerings include food, live music, vendors and activities that don't involve diving into freezing water.

Admission is free. Parking is available at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Rowe Boulevard and Taylor Avenue in Annapolis; Anne Arundel Community College, 101 College Parkway in Arnold; and Kent Island High School, 900 Love Point Road in Stevensville. Information:
