DENVER – Every weekend, Denver7 compiles a list of some fun events you might enjoy. Here are our picks for the 7 best things to do in the Denver metro area and beyond this weekend.
1. Partake in a unique Colorado tradition in Nederland this weekend
It’s no Walt Disney conspiracy theory – it’s better than that. Frozen Dead Guy Days pays homage to a Norwegian man whose body has been cryogenically preserved on dry ice in the mountains overlooking the town for nearly 30 years. The party, which begins Friday, marks the end of winter with outrageous traditions like coffin races, a costumed polar plunge, brain-freeze contest and other seasonal-themed fun.

2. Celebrate Native American culture during the 46th Denver March Powwow
The modern powwow is a time for Native American peoples to come together to sing and dance, and to honor the heritage that has been passed down to them from their ancestors. The 46th Powwow is happening Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Denver Coliseum, 4600 Humboldt St.
