Perham celebration races at a turtle's pace
In Perham, slow and steady always wins the race, no matter how loud the turtle trainers yell.
This week, the small Minnesota town invites everyone to Turtle Fest, a celebration that gets its name from Perham's 30-year turtle racing tradition.
Last season, nearly 4,000 people of all ages participated in the races. At this week's festival, hundreds of newcomers will get a chance to try their luck.
