Dierks Bentley rings in each New Year with his annual Polar Bear Plunge – jumping into a freezing cold lake. Usually, he is home in Nashville and goes to nearby Percy Priest Lake for the jump. But for the past couple of years he has been in Orlando for a New Year’s Eve Show. This year, when he went to his trusty Orlando pond to take the plunge, he found an “Alligator Warning” sign posted, causing a change in plans.

To keep his annual tradition intact, he filled a kiddie pool with cold water and ice and climbed in. “No lake today; had to improvise,” he tweeted. “Improvising” turned out to be a long soak in a yellow kiddie pool full of ice.
