Chill Out at Frozen Dead Guy Days

When it comes to Colorado weirdness, nothing beats Nederland's Frozen Dead Guy Days.

This year's festival begins today at 4 p.m. with the Blue Ball, in the "ReAnimate Yourself Tent," in Guercio Field, near Barker Reservoir.

The ball includes live music, cocktails at an ice bar, and a costume contest for those who come dressed as the "Cold-as-Ice Queen" or "Grandpa Bredo," aka Frozen Dead Guy, the Norwegian man rumored to be cryogenically frozen inside a Tuff Shed in downtown Nederland.

Frosty festivities continue on Saturday, March 10, and Sunday, March 11, and include frozen T-shirt contests, coffin racing, a parade of hearses, a silent disco, the frozen salmon toss, a brain freeze contest, and costumed polar plunging (don't ask, just enjoy).
