Registration begins at noon. Festivities begin at 11:45 a.m. with children’s crafts, family activities and entertainment by stilt walkers.

Prizes will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place swimmers, the oldest swimmer and the farthest swimmer. Registration forms are available in advance on the corporation's website.

For those looking for an indoor workout, Delta’s municipal recreation facilities will offer free swim, skate and weight room workouts on New Year’s Day.
