Celebrating Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland

In 1994, a newspaper reporter in the town of Nederland discovered that one resident, a Norwegian immigrant named Aud Bauge, had been keeping her father’s cryonically preserved corpse in a shed behind her house for half a decade. Thus was the genesis of Frozen Dead Guy Days, an annual spring festival that celebrates Nederland’s most famous (late) resident with snowshoe races, a polar swim, and a dance known as Grandpa’s Blue Ball. Among other highlights are a parade, coffin races, and a tour of the backyard shed where Bredo Morstel is still frozen. Don’t forget to pack your morbid sense of humor.
