Both gyms will be full of vendors, because the trade show is fully booked. You'll find a variety of booths, and you are encouraged to browse your way through the whole community center.

Food

Both Perham Lions Clubs will have food booths, so you can munch to your heart's content. The Perham Rotary Club will be running the popular Taste of Perham, featuring locally manufactured and processed food items.

Entertainment

Entertainment and seminars are available throughout the day, both days of the show:

  • Casting contest for kids? Check.
  • Four free Extreme Makeovers each day? Check.
  • Archery? Check.
  • Tae Kwon Do demo? Check.
  • Golf demo? Check.
  • This year's Perham Trade and Home Show will have some extra exposure, with TV3 on hand Saturday and Sunday to tape four shows that will be broadcast on the local cable channel in the future. Shows include "Easy Gourmet" on Saturday, "Talking Trash" on Sunday and "Golf at the Lakes" on Saturday and Sunday.

    Eight people, four Saturday and four Sunday, will receive a free Extreme Makeover, compliments of SaStone Salon and Spa. You will need to register before 10:45 each day, then the four lucky recipients will be drawn, and the makeovers will begin, taking place right on the main floor of the trade show. They'll be complete by 3 p.m., at which time recipients will proudly show their new images.

    Perham Lions members will offer free screenings for glaucoma and diabetes both days of the 2010 trade show.
