ST. CLOUD- Colorful tutus as far as the eye could see, superheros and even clowns could be seen at this year's Polar Plunge.

Over 500 brave souls came out to the Water's Edge to support Special Olympics Minnesota by plunging into the frozen lake.

With today's (Saturday) high being in the low 40s event coordinator Molly Swanson says the warmer weather has created a larger crowd than expected.

"I'm thinking we'll probably have more people decide to walk up and plunge today at the last minute." -Swanson

The Polar Plunge is expected to raise around $70,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota. Funds raised will benefit more than 8,100 Special Olympics Minnesota athletes.
