EVERGREEN, Colo. (CBS4) – After some uncertainty surrounding the event, the 2018 New Year’s Day Evergreen Lake Plunge was a success!

The Evergreen Park & Recreation District decided on Thursday afternoon to have the New Year’s Day plunge at the lake after considering moving the annual event indoors due to warm weather.
