On a cold night, A cool parade

Temperatures that dipped into the single digits on Friday night didn't scare away parade lovers in Perham. While turnout was noticeably lower than last year, people still lined the streets to watch as 23 lighted floats traveled through downtown for the annual Parade of Lights. Some businesses put barrel fires outside of their shops to help keep people warm. In an after party at Mulligan's, float winners were announced. They include: First place, R.L. Construction; second place, Perham Health-Sanford; third place, Bremer Bank; and fourth place, Dreams for Kids. Door prize winners were Arvig Relay for Life, Zorbaz and Perham Area EMS.
