Perham High School held pepfest in the Prairie Wind Middle School gym on Friday afternoon. The high school pep band, football team and homecoming court were all on hand to whip up some school spirit with the elementary and middle school. After listening to the pep band, high school students led some fun and games, that included stacking dice on a stick, an egg toss and a tug of war. Afterwards, the students lined the streets for the homecoming parade.
