CHICOPEE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Despite the cold, some local residents still wanted to take a dip in the pool.

Chicopee High School held an open swim today on Front St. On one of the coldest days of winter, swimmers said they'll happily pay $3 to take the plunge...in warm water.

"It's warm and you can actually go inside," said 8-year-old Sofia Szumski from Chicopee. "It's fun to play in it because you can have friends and just hang out in the pool. I especially love floating and being lazy."

Life guards were also on duty today. Winter swimming will continue through March 8th.
