Cancellation Policy

The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership relies on the guidance of the Lewisburg Fire and Rescue Squad to determine river safety. In the event of unusually high water or swift currents, the LDP will cancel the Plunge rather than risk participant safety.

Cancellation Policy: Any participant who has prepaid the registration fee prior to cancellation of the event will be issued a registration voucher for the next year's event. No refunds will be issued. Questions regarding this policy, please contact the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership.


For questions regarding registration, please contact Lynn at or 570.577.1292.
