Frozen Dead Guy DaysColorado, USA

With events including coffin racing, a hearse parade and frozen turkey bowling, Frozen Dead Guy Days seem more like a scene in a Tim Burton film than an annual festival in the quiet mountain community of Nederland, Colorado.

Dreamed up by a cryonic-crazy family that has kept its Grandpa Bredo on ice for years (and across continents), it’s hard to decide if the story behind the festival or the festival itself is more bizarre.

It’s about an hour’s drive from Denver to Nederland. There’s a free shuttle running from Denver and Boulder to Nederland during the festival.

Tickets to heated tents with live music start at US$10.

Start practising your frozen turkey toss today and you might have a shot at the title.
