Anyone can participate - and we hope you will

At 11:00 AM, "shamrocks" will dash and splash in the water to demonstrate their commitment to a clean Boston Harbor and to support their beach. Immediately following the splash, participants and their fans and friends will adjourn on the beach to warm up and relax with a Harpoon beer.
Participants will raise funds to support Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and its Better Beaches program. Participants are encouraged to sport their finest “shamrock” attire!

To register to participate, click the "register" button above. Each participant is asked to raise at least $25. To pledge a participant or team, click on the "donate" button. Funds raised will support free events and programs on our region’s public beaches. This site has tools that make it easy for participants to donate themselves, and to contact their friends to encourage them to give, and track pledges.

$20 Registration Donation includes:
  • Beer from Harpoon Brewery
  • Post-Splash Meal
  • Harpoon Koozie
  • A chance to win a round-trip JetBlue ticket

  3. Best costume for male and female each win a round trip ticket on JetBlue*
  4. Everyone who makes a contribution (registration, donation or pledge) is entered in a raffle to win a round trip ticket on JetBlue*

To qualify for prizes, each participant has to register, sign a release, fulfill their pledge, and go into the water up to their knees, though we hope that everyone will actually take a quick dip in the cool, clean waters of Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay. You must also be in the group photograph, or in a photograph of yourself at the event.
