As Mayor of the City of Perry, I would like to welcome you to our website. Perry has been designated one of Iowa's "Great Places" and I invite you to learn more about our progressive community. From the "Bike Ride to Rippey" otherwise known as BRR ( or the Winter RAGBRAI Reunion) in February, the Friday Fests with live music and a mouth-watering variety of foods, our old fashioned 4th of July Celebration to our Latino Festival and the annual Lighted Christmas Parade in November, we have a rich tradition of events for our residents and visitors to enjoy.
