The fifth annual Frozen Dead Guy Days festival ended Sunday in Nederland.
By Saturday, 1,500 people had shown up for the three-day event honoring the late "Grand" Bred Morstoel, who has been cryogenically frozen in a Tuff Shed in Nederland since 1993.
Snow and fog added to the ambiance this year.
Firefighters had to cut through six inches of ice in a lake at Chipeta Park show contestants could jump in the frigid waters for the Polar Plunge event.
The hometown "Over the Rainbow" team won the coffin race.
