“See you in 2022!” That’s the message from the Cayucos Chamber of Commerce regarding this year’s Polar Bear Dip.

The Carlin Soulé Memorial Polar Bear Dip usually attracts thousands to the beach in Cayucos on New Year’s Day.

Like many events already this year, COVID-19 concerns have forced organizers to cancel the 2021 event.

The Cayucos Chamber of Commerce is asking people to abide by county and state social distancing guidelines and not gather in groups this New Year's Day.

The Avila Beach Polar Bear Plunge event has also be canceled and is set to take place again in 2022.
