    Name: Leprechaun Plunge: Plunging for Phil's Beach
    Date: March 16, 2019
    Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Join us for the 9th Annual Leprechaun Plunge: Plunging for Phil’s Beach! The plunge will be at a new location, but we'll have the same old fun! The freezing festivities begin at Middleton's on Main for a "Pre-Plunge Party” at 8am with a breakfast buffet and libations. Then join in on the Northern Illinois Pipes & Drums led parade of costumed participants and spectators kicking off at 10:30am, proceeding north on Main Street and east on Park St. down to Lindy’s Landing for the Leprechaun Plunge festivities! Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume, Best Irish Toast, Best Limerick, Best Irish Jig, and Best Water Entry. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. LIVE MUSIC from Jeff Trudell inside Lindy’s! A completed registration & waiver form and $25 is all you need to participate in taking the plunge, and the first 100 registrants will receive the cool logo’d long sleeve tee shirt. Registration forms will be available at Lindy’s Landing, Wauconda Park District, or online at http://bit.ly/PlungingForPhilsBeach . In the spirit of raising money for Phil’s Beach redevelopment, the party will go on whether or not the ice allows us to create an opening in the lake. We have a plan B! Proceeds this year will be donated to the Wauconda Parks Foundation towards Phil's Beach redevelopment! The Wauconda Parks Foundation was formed late last year to assist in furthering the mission of the Wauconda Park District. The mission of the Park District is to enrich lives in the community by providing quality recreation and leisure opportunities. To accomplish these goals, the Foundation’s first goal is to develop fundraising strategies to assist in the redevelopment of Phil’s Beach. The Wauconda Parks Foundation is a registered 501 (c) 3. For additional information contact Nancy Burton, Director of Parks and Recreation, for the Wauconda Park District @ 847-526-3610.
