As festival goers made their way down Perham’s Main Street, there was an abundance of music, courtesy Todd Sisson, who was stationed on the corner of Main and First.
A farmer’s market was set up in NP Park where harvest garden goodies including honey, pumpkins, bell peppers, potatoes and carrots along with pickles and homemade bread were sold. There were also ample entertainment opportunities at this year’s fest. Phil Holtan provided a woodturning demonstration, transforming small blocks of wood into decorative table trees. People also whirled the big wheel for prizes (every spin a winner), and games were set up in the park for kids, including pumpkin bowling and ring toss. Face painting was on tap, too, at PS I Love You Boutique, where kids waited patiently in line to get a brightly -colored character painted on their arm, face or hand. The Perham Express was in operation for the day as well, offering up free transportation to all who wanted to ride the iconic train.        All in all, the day was perfect. With the weather in full cooperation, festival goers were able to fully partake in the bounty of fall. With a warm breeze blowing and lots of bright sunshine streaming about, Harvest Fest 2015 hit the streets of Perham Sept. 26 celebrating all things autumn.As festival goers made their way down Perham’s Main Street, there was an abundance of music, courtesy Todd Sisson, who was stationed on the corner of Main and First.
