Chicago Polar Plunge 2014
North Avenue Beach , Lincoln Park Sunday March 6 2016 Free

If they did it just for kicks, we'd agree these plungers were a little crazy for wearing next to nothing and jumping into icy Lake Michigan during March's freezing temps. But they're taking a dip to raise money for the Special Olympics Chicago, too. Last year, Vince Vaughn and Lady Gaga showed up for the chilly festivities—perhaps this year Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as Mr. Freeze?
