Frozen Dead Guy Days

Parade in Nederland

This macabre, bizarre and wonderful festival brings life – about 15,000 souls – to Nederland in the early spring. A three-day blowout event, it celebrates Grandpa Bredo Morstoel, a Norwegian transplant who is cryogenically frozen, surrounded by dry ice in a local tuff shed, awaiting reanimation. Dozens of live bands, coffin races, polar plunging, salmon tossing and beer make this a must-do.
