Hundreds Plunge into Icy Lake Michigan

Hundreds of people along Milwaukee's lakefront are taking a new year's day plunge in the frigid waters of Lake Michigan.
This is a live look at Bradford Beach where the annual polar bear plunge is now underway.
Talk about a place to see and be seen. Folks are dressed up in all kinds of costumes. Most take a quick dip a few hearty souls make a big splash everybody has some warm clothes to get into when they get out.
This was a way to raise money for charity. Just a little south of the beach is the annual 'cool fool kite festival' which runs until 5 at veterans park...and next door to the park is the Milwaukee Art Museum which is offering free admission today.
