EVENT: Christmas Day

What's better than a peaceful stroll along the beach to take in the wonders of a truly magnificent day.


EVENT: New Years Eve - Pony Island Horseshoe Drop & Costume Promenade

TIME: 10:45 PM LOCATION: Robert Reed Downtown Park

Join us for New Years Eve!

The Pony Island Horseshoe Drop is an end of year celebration that culminates in a promenade of crazy costumes just before the countdown to the stroke of midnight. That's when the lighted horseshoe drops just in time to ring in the New Year!....

Wear your favorite costume or just be a spectator... It's all perfectly natural here!

To become totally immersed in the oddest of silly visual spectacles, you should head for the Downtown Waterfront Park around 10:45 PM. Prizes will be awarded in various categories


EVENT: New Years Day - Polar Pony Plunge TIME: Sunday @ 1:18 PM

LOCATION: on the Beach - Assateague Island, VA

...Even a cool day at the beach beats a day at work

*Surf’s Up! Hang Ten, Catch a Wave, or Take a Dip,… whatever floats your boat.

*Dress up, dress silly, or wear mittens and a scarf, just be the first on the first!

Nothing can compare to the invigorating feeling you get by plunging into the ice-cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean! It really is an awesome experience. There will be lots of fun all around. Plungers are encouraged to dress up in the zaniest, craziest costume they can come up with!

To convince the skeptics back at work, get a t-shirt to memorialize every chilling detail!

Prizes await the best costumes in many categories, and more! Just remember, if you decide to plunge, you'll need to read and sign the Plunge Waiver and Release Form. There is NO fee to enter the water.
