PHOTO: Batman does the Polar Bear Dip, yesterday at Britannia Beach

Batman at yesterday’s Sears Great Canadian Chill (New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip) at Britannia Beach in Ottawa.  Photographer Mr. Casual says: “Fingers were frozen just taking the photo”.

(Does anyone know the identity of this masked ice crusader?  Send us a note at feedback@ottawastart.com if you know this guy.)



Here’s Batman running to shelter afterwards.



( Here’s video from the 2012 event. )
