IRVINGTON, N.Y. – The home stretch has arrived for Irvington residents raising pledges for the second annual Penguin Plunge .

Brave residents will swim in the icy Hudson River on Saturday, beginning at 11:30 a.m., at Matthiessen Park.

“We are looking forward to another great event,” organizers said in an email to village residents. “You don’t want to miss out!”
