Uglies back in Perham Friday

Few bands have left such a mark on the ballrooms, clubs and crowds as the group known as The Unbelievable Uglies, a "rock and soul show band" that formed in Detroit Lakes in 1963.

Now, for the third year in a row, this incredible band will be playing in Perham from 8 p.m. to midnight on Friday, June 25 at the Historic Grand View Heights Ballroom, as part of Turtle Fest festivities.

Don't miss dancing on this treasure of a 90-year old (suspended) wooden dance floor -- feel every wooden beam vibrate to the music. Enjoy refreshments, beer and set-ups.
