Dogtown Winter Lights Display Party

For the second year, Invest DSM and neighborhood partners will decorate storefronts in the Drake neighborhood with an immersive, state-of-the-art lighting system for the holiday season. This year’s installation will add even more lights, expanding an extra block to the west toward the Drake University campus, to brighten up streets and attract more foot traffic to businesses during the dark winter months.

Dogtown Lights will begin with a lighting block party on University Avenue at 6 p.m. Saturday, organized by the Des Moines Music Coalition. Local businesses will provide specials for attendees, and there will be live entertainment and warm refreshments to celebrate the kickoff. The party includes a performance from Leradee and the Positives and a live DJ after the light display is revealed.
