FORKS TWP., Pa. -

Some in Northampton County kicked off the new year in a bone-chilling way.

These people took a refreshing dip this morning during the Polar Bear Plunge outside the Riverside Bar and Grill in Forks Township.

For many it's becoming an annual New Year's Day event.

"It's something we started last year..we're gonna keep doing it every year. It's a fun time," Nathan Haschak said.

Everyone who took the plunge agreed it was very cold...but kept smiling.
