Welcome to Frozen Dead Guy Days 2015 with Zeb and Eider Duck

I, Zeb the Duck, and my Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, went to Nederland, Colorado for Frozen Dead Guy Days.   And, yes, Nederland does really have a frozen dead guy in the mountains above the town.   He resides in a Tuff Shed, packed in dry ice.

The festival opened Friday evening, with the lighting of the Frozen Dead Guy Days sign at the traffic circle in town.

Zeb the Duck and Eider Duck are sitting in the top D.   We did not participate in the parade, so this is our only photo today.

The lighting of the sign ceremony was followed by the Blue Ball, featuring live music and dancing.

Saturday the Parade of Hearses began at noon.
