Frozen Dead Guy Days- Parade of Hearses

The weekend before last we drove to a tiny little town called Nederland to attend Frozen Dead Guy Days, a celebration inspired by one man's desire to be cryogenically frozen in his own backyard. I heard rumors that if you wanted to pay 25 bucks, you could get a full tour that included actually viewing the body, but we just stuck to the parade, polar plunge and coffin races.

First of all, the Hearse Parade.

And then there were competitors for the coffin races. This is the H1N1 crew. Joey didn't like them at all because they were pretending to throw up, something she is not OK with.

Moon Pies? I like Moon Pies.

And who doesn't love a three legged doggie?

He wasn't in the parade, but... Awww.

Come back tomorrow for pictures of the polar plunge.

I really need to go to this some year. I have a friend who goes every year and says it's a blast, but I always forget about it until after the fact...

I'm just speechless. We've been to Nederland, but...good grief!

Was it 'fun'?

Love Nederland, but we never made it out there for the parade!

Hi Wendy!
This looks like fun!!! And unlike our horrible rain you actually had nice weather for it!
I sent you an email from my work address last week. I was just wondering if it had ever gotten to you or if I should try again??
Cheers,
Renee

We thought about going, and I kinda wish now we had. If nothing else, it would have given my Iowa in-laws something to talk about for the next 8 months. LOL
