DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013! Some of you may be relaxing this weekend with a warm cup of joe and dunking a donut or two, but at DeepCreekLake the only dunking going on will entail a few thousand people watching a few warm hearted fund raisers plummeting in the depths of the icy lake. Ice cold purple bodies will risk all at the Deep Creek Dunk to raise money for the Special Olympics. “Lucky” for the dunkers that the air temps will be in lower 40’s but believe me when I tell you the lake temps are going to be slushy bitter cold. The chainsaws have been working this week to cut out the thick ice to create the perfect dunk zone.
Costumed dunkers consume the atmosphere trying to win the coveted costume contest. Believe me when I tell you that the creativity witnessed in some dunkers is far worth the price of admission to this super event (oh that’s right, there is no admission). Kiss, Michael Jackson, Nemo, Hank Jr, Gnomes, Clowns, and famous athletes have all made appearances at the evenT.
Uno’s and The Honi Bar will be serving up plenty of coffee and hot chocolate or your favorite drink of choice to keep you warm as a dunker or spectator. Of course, there will be plenty of food to keep you satisfied for the afternoon.
Goosebumps & Grapes, a wine tasting event & bonfire, kick-off the festivities on Friday 2/22/13 night from 6:00pm – 9:00pm at The Honi Honi Bar.
The Deep Creek Dunk’s official start time will be at 2:00pm on Saturday 2/23/2013 but people start the party mid-morning and carry on until late afternoon.
Here’s a video from a few years back to get you pumped up!
