On Tuesday, January 1st, 2020, the 7th annual Bill Murray Look-a-Like Polar Bear Plunge will take place in front of the Tides Hotel on Folly Beach. As you may remember, the event pays tribute to one of the Holy City’s favorite residents - Mr. William James Murray.
In celebration of the 2020 release of the franchise's fourth film, this year's plunge theme is Ghostbusters, so attendees are encouraged to come dressed in Ghostbuster gear.
A costume contest will take place before the plunge with prizes for categories including Best Bill Murray, Best Guy, Best Girl, Best Kid, Best Team, and Best Overall Bill costumes. Contest registration is $5 for adults (18 years and over) and begins at 1 pm. The plunge will begin at 2 pm; there is no fee for the plunge.
Guests can enjoy cocktails and other drink specials all weekend long, including a Bloody Mary Competition at participating Folly Beach businesses. The Bloody Mary Competition will run from Saturday, December 28th through Wednesday, January 1st, as visitors are invited to vote for their favorite Bloody Mary through the Visit Folly app. Competitors include Blu, The Drop-In Bar & Deli, Folly Beach Crab Shack, Jack Of Cups, Loggerhead's, Locklear's on Little Oak, LowLife Bar, Pier 101, Planet Follywood, Rita's Seaside Grille, Sand Dollar Social Club, Snapper Jack's, St. James Gate, Surf Bar, Taco Boy, The Washout, Wiki Wiki Sandbar, and Woody's.
