The City of Santa Clarita invites local residents to ring in the New Year at the 3rd annual Glacier Slide Polar Bear Swim on January 1, 2009 at the Aquatic Center Waterslide Pool. For $5, guests can enjoy this new local tradition and take home a limited edition Polar Bear Club beanie.

The Aquatic Center's doors will open at 8:30 a.m. and attendees should be ready to take the public polar bear plunge into chilly waters at 9 a.m. Coffee, donuts and heaters will be provided for local guests to warm up after making a splash, as the pool will not be open for recreational swimming.

"The Glacier Slide Polar Bear Swim promises to be an enjoyable experience for the entire family. Come out and join the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center in celebrating the New Year with a new tradition," commented Mayor Pro-Tem Laurene Weste.

Santa Clarita's Aquatic Center is located at 20850 Centre Pointe Parkway. For additional information on the 3rd annual Glacier Slide and Polar Bear Swim, please contact Parks and Recreation at (661) 250-3766 or visit
