The B’ville Big Chill was held for the first time on Saturday, January 26, at Baldwinsville’s Mercer Park featuring a Polar Bear Plunge into the icy Seneca River. All participants fully submerged and quickly ran back into the heated tent to change back into dry clothes and winter outer wear. The water was enough to bulge one’s eyes out as witnessed by this poor fellow. You can see the other events below.
Snowman Contest – for kids of all ages and their families. The snow wasn’t to cooperative but all put on a gallant effort. The winner was the snowman with the gloves and cane. Runner-up was the snowman that fell down. 🙂
Chili Cook Off – many local resturants took part to see who would impress the panel of judges which included Wayne Mahar, the chief meteorologist for our local NBC affiliate, WSTM (Ch. 3). Ironwood Golf Course Restaurant won the distinction of having the most original chili. The people’s choice award went to the Silver Fox Senior Social Club.
