Fun, free stuff in Ankeny

June 3, 2010 —

Now that our glorious sunshine-y summer is here, catch some free flicks under the stars at the Ankeny bandshell! That’s better than a drive-in!

Beginning this Friday, June 4, they’ll show a movie at dusk. This week it’s “Monsters vs. Aliens” and next week it is “Little Giants.” Bring the kids, some lawnchairs or blankets & enjoy a nice night out!

Also, they’re doing free yoga the hour before the movie each week in the same place!

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.
