Clayton’s Bar and Grill hosts 24th edition of Polar Bear Dip
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, TX (ValleyCentral) – Clayton’s Bar and Grill hosted the 24th Annual Polar Bear Dip.
Clayton Brashear, owner of Clayton’s Bar and Grill, told ValleyCentral that the Polar Bear Dip is for everyone to clean up from the year before. âWhatever happened to you wrong in the last year, get rid of it, put it behind you, look at life with a new set of lenses. “
Hundreds of participants attended, including some from Canada and Minnesota.
Winter Texan Larry Rau has owned property on SPI for almost two decades and has said this is his 17th year of participating in diving.
Rau not only came out this year to have fun and meet new people, but also to forget about last year.
âIt was difficult for a lot of people,â Rau added. “You couldn’t see any family, you couldn’t communicate with friends and I hope this year we will put that behind us.”
For the Texan winter, David Dutcher, the Polar Bear Dip gives him the opportunity to reunite with his grandsons and spend a vacation in warm weather.
Dutcher lives in Minnesota where he said the temperature is currently negative.
Clayton’s Bar & Grill plans to continue the tradition each year to help everyone ring in the New Year with a fresh start.
Registration is free and Clayton’s will then offer live music, food and drink.
Now that the new year has arrived, Brashear is gearing up for spring break in March and plans to have a normal spring break after having a small one in 2021.
Artists Polo G, Steve Aoki and Don Toliver will perform from March 12 to 19.
