Last February, for the first time, Sag Harbor celebrated HarborFrost. It was a blast, and this year it’s only getting bigger and better. On Saturday, February 11, beginning at noon, look for the return of village-wide restaurant specials ($20.12!), ice carving and fireworks. PLUS locals and “winter people” will be stripping down to their skivvies and jumping in the water next to Long Wharf at 3:30 p.m for “The Frosty Plunge”— raising money there at Windmill Beach to support the local ambulance corps. Local restaurant Phao will be giving participants hot soup and the Sag Harbor Gym is donating hot showers for plungers, and you can look for Dan’s Papers own Kelly Laffey and Denise Borschein will be there in the frigid waters getting their HarborFrost on. Buy them a drink?
There will be more live music at HarborFrost this year as well, provided by local musicians throughout the village, plus the many shops will be featuring sales and discounts. Check out the schedule of events below:
