Sixth annual Pelican Plunge draws hundreds

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of participants braved the cold water and rain on New Year's Day for the sixth annual Pelican Plunge at Hunting Island North Beach.  

The crowd included young and old, as well as pets, who ran into the water with their owners.

This was the first time for some participants, while others have made it a family tradition.

There is no admission fee for the Pelican Plunge but the park does accept pledge donations for its Discover Carolina school program.
