Pitts-burrrrgh Drowned Hog Swim
South Side Trail
[ venue info
Join the Pitts-burrrrrgh Drowned Hogs at the 18th Street Boat Ramp for a dip in the river to celebrate Groundhog Day --- when, according to folklore, a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil determines whether we will enjoy an early spring.
Begun in 2006, the Pitts-burrrrrgh Drowned Hogs is an informal group of adventurous people who plunge into the chilly Monongahela River on Groundhog Day.
Challenge co-workers and other teams to see who can raise the most money or wear the goofiest outfits. Proceeds benefit Circle C, a private, nonprofit agency serving troubled and disadvantaged youth throughout the greater Pittsburgh area since 1967. For more information, call (412) 937-1605 ext 227.
