For the past four years a merry band of somewhat hung-over folks try to beat that hangover by jumping in the Chesapeake on New Year's Day. Come celebrate the New Year with us by coming out to jump in, or just put your toes in, or just simply watch the madness unfold. All we ask is that you bring a small donation to help support our local fire hall.
Come one and come all to the Rock Hall Beach at High Noon on New Years Day, and see the crazies jump in the water all in the name of the Rock Hall Fire hall.
