It's that time again — the annual Polar Bear party will be celebrated in Carbondale this upcoming weekend.

Pinch Penny Pub and Copper Dragon will host their annual Polar Bear party from 10 a.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday. The 18-hour marathon event features hot drink specials at the bars, giveaways and live entertainment by Wedding Banned.

Cover is $5.

According to event promoter Anthony Greff, this year's event marks 15 consecutive years for the annual winter party. It started as a way for a bar to move Corona beer in the winter, and has become an unofficial winter homecoming for some SIU Carbondale alumni, Greff said.
