  • Witness an unusual event in Colorado this winter

    2012-01-27

    Some small towns in the U.S. boast a wonderfully unique charm and can also host thrilling one-of-a-kind events. Travelers searching for a different kind of destination could journey to the small town of Nederland, Colorado, for their annual Frozen Dead Guy Days festival held at the beginning of March, reports The New York Times.

    Although the name of the festival is a little jarring, the activities and fun things to do throughout the special week are often vibrant and lively. All of the happenings are in honor of a local legend involving a man named Bredo Morstoel, whose body had been frozen and kept in the town for scientific reasons.

    Participants can try out a series of icy contests and events, including concerts, ice turkey bowling and frozen t-shirt competitions.

    Nederland is about an hour outside of Denver, which could also be great to explore while on vacation in the region. According to Lonely Planet, a visit to the city's Sculptural Park can be a wonderful way to spend the afternoon outside. This grassy area often hosts live musical performances and has several stunning artworks to view for free, including the iconic statue called the Dancers.
