Polar Bear Swim and the Winter Party in Town 2014

Don’t miss out the opportunity to enjoy Gibraltar with a twist this Christmas!

Whether you are going to visit Gibraltar this Christmas or still planning it in mind, we think these two events can be of interest to you.

Since many years ago, it’s been a special tradition for some to celebrate Boxing Day in Gibraltar by participating in an extremely popular ‘Polar Bear Swim’. The mild waters of the Atlantic Ocean embraces the more enthusiastic and brave individuals. The bathing is normally held at Catalan Bay and raises money for different charities. Those bathers, who take the plunge during the city’s annual Polar Bear Swim, are treated to mince pies, mulled wine, and brandy to help them warm up once they return to the dry land.

On the other hand, this year the famous ‘Winter Party in Town’ will be held at Casemates Square on 20th December from 2pm to 8pm. Join in the fun to this spectacular day featuring Boney M with the original Maizie Williams. Supported by local band The Trio and other local acts, the festival will also have kid’s activities, magic acts, dance groups and even Santa will be there!


With all those in mind, don’t you think it is time to arrange something in your diary?
