Spend New Year’s Day at Huntington Beach’s 15th annual Surf City Splash.
Participants are asked to wear bathing suits only — no wetsuits — so they can feel the full effect of the chilly Pacific Ocean when they plunge in at 11 a.m.
There will be a $5 pancake breakfast and craft fair starting at 9 a.m. next to the Huntington Beach Pier. A costume contest will begin at 10:30, with prizes in various categories.
Registration is available for $20 at http://www.hbsurfcitysplash.com or for $30 the day of the event at the International Surfing Museum, 411 Olive Ave., Huntington Beach. Proceeds will benefit the museum and local school surf clubs. All participants will receive a T-shirt, breakfast and a certificate of appreciation.
