SLIDESHOW: The 2013 Polar Plunge!

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thousands gathered at the Tumbleweed on the Waterfront Saturday morning for the 2013 Polar Plunge!

The event, which raises money for the Special Olympics, features teams of people -- some of whom are in costume -- jumping into icy-cold water.

WDRB's very own David Scott, Kelly Davis and producer Jessica Denson, all took part.

A costume contest was also part of the festivities, with revelers dressing up as smurfs, superheroes, "Oompa Loompas" and even Freddy Krueger!

One man marked the occasion by proposing to his girlfriend in front of a massive crowd cheering him on. She said 'yes,' and they kissed to wild applause.
