Jumper in breast costume makes the plunge.

Saturday's Polar Bear Jumpoff may be one of the warmest on record for the fundraiser's 30th year. Jumpers who have collected pledges are set to leap, in crazy costumes, into Seward's Small Boat Harbor at 12:30 p.m. Saturday to raise money for the American Cancer Society and Children with Cancer on he Kenai Peninsula. But the family fun goes on all weekend.

All the events in the three-day festival raise funds for groups that support cancer research or support those who suffer from the disease.

Friday night's auction at Tony's Bar usually raises the second highest amount of money of the weekend.

The entertainment and awards ceremony with the taping of The Big Alaska Show is hugely popular.

Events over the weekend include a parade, children's carnival, Wii bowling, waiter/waitress contest, poker and pool tournaments, and Karaoke contest.

Meals will served at all restaurants along with fundraiser meals at the American Legion and Seward Senior Center.

Live music is on tap at the Yukon Bar and Tony's Bar.
