If you’re eager to plan a getaway, you need to check out Colorado’s highly anticipated event, Frozen Dead Guy Days. This unique and quirky event takes place March 13th-15th in the Colorado mountain town of Netherland. Here’s everything you need to know about the event before attending!
History of Frozen Dead Guy Days
The name of this event sounds shocking, but it has significant meaning and relevance. In 1989, Norway public official, Bredo Morstol, passed away from a heart condition. With hopes that one day they’d find a cure to Morstol’s heart condition, his grandson had Morstol’s body preserved. His frozen body is kept in a Tuff Shed in Netherland, Colorado.
Now people come from around the world to celebrate the legacy of “Grandpa Bredo.” It’s truly a dead man’s party! The celebration started in 2002 and this year will be the 19th anniversary.
