Frozen Dead Guy Days

An annual Weekend At Bernie's-style festival.

It’s hard to determine what’s stranger: a grandpa frozen in a shed (for real) or an entire festival dedicated to him including coffin races, ice turkey bowling, polar plunge and a frozen t-shirt contest (to name a few). The story goes, Grandpa Bredo died and was cryogenically frozen. He was kept in his grandkids home, on ice, as they tried to start their own cryogenics facility. After a near-eviction, Bredo got international fame while a festival was sprung in his honour in Nederlands, Colorado. He’s nearing 109 now, having spent the last 20 of those years frozen solid.

This week’s Frandoms are by Natalie Armata, CD, Giants and Gentlemen.
