OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (AP) - It’s New Year’s Day and that means people are getting wet - and cold - in Maine.

The Lobster Dip at Old Orchard Beach is one of the biggest of the events in which people ring in the new year by running into the icy surf. Proceeds to go Maine Special Olympics.

Other events were being held at Kennebunk Beach, and more are scheduled later in the month.

The Natural Resources Council of Maine kicked off the polar plunge season with its New Year’s Eve Polar Bear Dip n’Dash.
