While this summer in Perham will not feature Turtle Races, the Perham Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding "T's, Turtles, and Give Away Wednesday$" each Wednesday in June through August.

The first event is this week, Wednesday, June 3.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays, the tent and the sponsor banners will be set up in Turtle Race park, according to the chamber. There will be music, chips and licorice, T-shirts for sale and a signup box to give away Perham Bucks.

The Chamber will be playing it safe this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic but in order to create a little bit of normalcy and atmosphere of the Turtle, Races will be holding the event in this manner without the four-legged friends.

Turtle Fest June 17-21 will be proceeding with modifications for social distancing, according to the chamber.
