Be a part of Charles City’s coolest event of the year by taking an ice-cold dip in the Cedar River to benefit two local organizations. The Cedar River Shiver is coordinated by Community Revitalization and Floyd County Search and Rescue, and the event serves as cold water training for Search and Rescue.
Prizes are awarded for best costumes-individual and team, oldest plunger, farthest traveling plunger and the all new true blue business. All participants receive a commemorative Cedar River Shiver stocking cap. For those with an aversion to the cold, sign up as a chicken and receive a special chicken stocking cap and stay warm while cheering in the chicken coop during the event.
