Email News Alerts

It’s that time of year again to ‘chill out’ and have some fun at Perham’s Freeze Fest.

This is the fifth year in a row that the community has taken part in this winter fundraising event. All proceeds go to Kinship of the Perham Area to benefit children in need.


Freeze Fest events will be ongoing on Saturday, Feb. 8, including the ‘big event’ of the day – the Freezin’ for a Reason polar plunge, set to start at 1 p.m. at Zorbaz on Little Pine Lake.
