This event is definitely one-of-a-kind. Participating Plungers collect donations and pledges from their friends and family in exchange for a commitment to jump in freezing waters of Lake Ozarks. This event has brought more than 600 plungers and raised more than $200,000 in recent years.
Not only will the plungers dive into the waters, but they are also encouraged to be creative with costumes or team themes to add entertainment to the event.
Here is the schedule of Events for the Day:
- Registration - 12:00pm-2:00pm
- Parade Lineup for Judging - 1:50pm
- Parade of Costumes - 2:00 pm
- Announcements & Plungers' Oath - 2:15pm

When you're done with the plunge, be sure to head on over to JJ Twigs and warm up with some of the Best Pizza at Lake of the Ozarks at either of our locations! Our new location inside Dierberg’s features an EXPRESS KITCHEN at the front of the store, and seating for about 100 upstairs on the Lakeview Terrace, which offers an incredible view of the Lake. Our restaurance location at the Business 54 and HH in Lake Ozark also is home to Risky’s Sports Bar.
