The Freezin' for a Reason Polar Plunge was held Saturday as a part of Perham's annual Freeze Fest. The event timed out well with the weather, happening not long after a string of below zero days and just before Sunday's blizzard. In addition to the jump, there was also an after-party at Zorbaz, a pancake breakfast and 5K race in the morning, a fishing derby, and hockey tournaments.
