Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA (CBS 8) - The La Jolla Cove Swim Club held its annual Polar Bear Plunge at La Jolla Shores beach.

Hundreds of brave souls jumped into the 60-degree Pacific Ocean.

One swimmer said there's no better way to end the year.

"The camaraderie of it all. I think humans gather together as the new year begins," one participant said.

The annual event also featured a giant potluck picnic with hot chili and soup, which helped warm up the participants.
