Music, food, fun a stone’s throw from DMU!

August 21, 2008 —

Saturday, 4-11 p.m., is Ingersoll Live!, a mere jaunt from DMU. This is the third year for the event and while I have never been, it appears to be a street festival with live music and food/drink vendors and there’s no way that could be bad! Juice has details here.

The fun is coordinated by the Ingersoll Business Association and they show photos from last year’s event here. Check it out on Ingersoll, between 28th & 31st streets.


Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
