The Yards is excited to announce the return of Ice Yards! In partnership with Special Olympics DC, the neighborhood will host the Polar Plunge Fundraiser at the 9th annual winter festival.

Participants, following a month-long fundraising campaign, will “take the plunge” to raise funds for Special Olympics DC in an above-ground swimming pool on the boardwalk as Ice Yards guests cheer them on. The Polar Plunge supports over 2,500 DC-based athletes with year-round sports training and the opportunity to compete in the Special Olympics DC Games.

Ice Yards guests will be able to enjoy live music, photo booths, ax-throwing, iceless curling, and so much more! Seasonal beverages and treats from favorite Yards restaurants will also be available to help folks stay warm post-plunge.
