|Mayor Gierlach at Frozen Dead Guy Days 2013|
In this Boulder County Business Report article: Dead Guy's Departure Won't Put Fest On Ice:
"Not intending a pun, Nederland mayor Joe Gierlach said the festival rescues a dead month."
Well, people who know me, know that all puns are intended.
The event fills an economic niche just when cabin fever kicks-in, and people want to get out from winter. The timing is ideal for local businesses, so even if it weren't about a Frozen Dead Guy, we'd still need some sort of festival at this time of year.
As it turns out, Grandpa is still frozen in Nederland, and the end of winter festival lives on.
