Updated 8 months ago

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Scores of Mainers are celebrating the new year by getting wet.

Maine Special Olympics is holding its annual Lobster Dip fundraiser at Old Orchard Beach.

The National Weather Service says it’ll be plenty nippy for participants plunging into the Atlantic Ocean with temperatures rising from single digit temperatures to a high of about 20 degrees on New Year’s Day.

Dippers last year raised nearly $100,000 for the statewide, year-round program of sports training and athletic competitions for more than 3,800 Special Olympics participants.
