The 16th Frozen Dead Guy Days kicked off in Nederland, Colorado, the United States on Saturday.
The quirky festival is held annually to honor Bredo Morstol, a Norwegian man whose family froze him after dying in 1989 with the hope he could be brought back to life in the future.
Six years ago, the chamber sold the festival to Amanda MacDonald, an event planner for the chamber.
The festival itself is a break-even endeavor, MacDonald said b, but it is a boon for local businesses in the hamlet of about 1,500 full-time residents.
The celebrations feature events such as coffin races, a parade of hearses and frozen Turkey Bowling.
The three-day festival attracts over 20,000 visitors from all over the US.
