It's not quite beach weather. But that didn't stop some folks from taking a plunge into Lake Michigan over the weekend.

It's all for charity though. Participants in the annual Polar Plunge took a brief swim, or at least a splash, into the icy waters of Lake Michigan.

There was a creative variety of swimwear on display at the event, and it all raises money for a good cause.

Sunday's Polar Plunge benefited Special Olympics Chicago.
