(VIDEO) A Bunch of Folk are Going to Hurl Themselves Into Humboldt Bay Today

Above: Highlights from the 2017 Perilous Plunge.

That’s right, gravity fans! Saturday boasts the return of the Perilous Plunge, the Discovery Museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Starting at 11 a.m., plungers will march toward the Boardwalk and then generously, one by one, fling themselves off the pier at the foot of F Street into the temperature-challenged waters of Humboldt Bay. (Hopefully they gathered some pledges beforehand.)

If you’ve attended the Plunge in years past, you’re aware that the prime viewing areas fill pretty quickly, so boogie down early.

More details on the plunge and other Saturday joy in your Lowdown below.
