A Wet and Wild Start to 2015

Mercury Photo by John Strickler
A spirited crowd of more than 100 people splashed into the Schuylkill River at Pottstown's Riverfront Park Thursday to celebrate New Year's Day 2015.

So it happened again.

For the seventh year in a row, a crowd of crazies put their gumption and community spirit on display by running half naked into the nearly freezing waters of the Schuylkill River to celebrate New Year's Day.

I've covered quite a few of these and I have to say, it never gets old.

Here is a video I put together from the day's events:

And here are the less impressive photos and other video I Tweeted out while covering it.

Happy New Year everybody
