Turtle races have begun

The 2013 International Turtle Races have officially begun in Perham.

The racing season kicked off this Wednesday, June 5, and will continue through the last Wednesday in August. Races are held every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at the park next to Perham City Hall. Registration starts at 10 a.m.

Every participant receives a ribbon and a prize bag full of goodies donated by local businesses. Kids can bring their own turtle to race, or may borrow one from the Turtle Pits.

It doesn’t cost anything to participate, but donations are always welcome to help house and feed the turtles throughout the summer.
