Support the Tybee Post Theater and gather up a few of your wackiest, zaniest, fun-loving friends and family at the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion on New Year's Day for the Tybee Island Plunge and "Gang of Goofs" parade and contest. Join more than 1,000 brave souls and take a re-energizing dip into the Atlantic Ocean at the strike of noon.
Before the Plunge, you can watch the ever-popular Gang of Goofs Costume Contest and Parade that begins at 11AM. Dozens of fun-loving groups of three or more don wacky costumes and parade in front of celebrity judges before taking the frigid plunge into the Atlantic Ocean. Or, better yet, get your own crazy friends together, pick out your costumes and join the competition for awesome prizes, including vacation stays from the sponsors. The first place team will also receive the esteemed Le Gang of Goof's trophy engraved with their team name and displayed at the location of their choice for a whole year. Each Gang of Goofs participant must register to participate in the Polar Plunge. Last year's winners, the Cat & the Hat Crew, will be back from Ohio to defend their title from 2015.
So, pack up your goofy friends, family and even Fido and head to the Best Western Plus Savannah Historic District for a few of wacky, zany, and fun-filled days. The Best Western Plus Savannah Historic District is the perfect place to call "home base" while visiting Savannah and Tybee Island. Its location is ideal for walking to many popular and historic sites and is just a few minutes drive to Tybee Island.
