RENTON – Start your new year with a quick dip into the icy waters of Lake Washington at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park located at 1201 Lake Washington Blvd. N in Renton. The Polar Bear Dip begins at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 1, at the south end of the park and promises to be exhilarating for all adventurous participants. No registration is required and a lifeguard will be on duty. This event is co-sponsored by Ivar’s and The Reserve Sanctuary Apartments at The Landing.
