Frozen Dead Guy Days featured many fun events on a chilly Saturday.
Live Music showcased in 3 Super Tents in Nederland, CO, kept the party crowd entertained as did the many of the activities. Strange Americans played to a raucous crowd, living it up at the quirky festival. The biggest draw by far was the Coffin Racing. Teams competed around a short track filled with sand hills, cold water, and a balance beam that one of the team mates had to walk across after dizzying themselves with a bat. Other events included Costumed Polar Plunging, Parade of Hearses, Frozen t-shirt Contests, Icy Turkey Bowling, and the Newly Dead Game. It was a fun day filled with many incredible activities based around Bredo Morstol, the frozen dead guy.
