‘Twas the last weekend before Christmas

Des Moines Lights‘Twas the last weekend before Christmas and all through DMU, students were stirring, in search of something to do…

Tomorrow is the last day before a long (and I’m sure, much needed) Winter Break, but there are still a ton of fun things to do this weekend if you are sticking around Des Moines.

Strap on your skates and go for a spin around the rink at the Brenton Skating Plaza. Open all weekend, Friday, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. – 11 p.m., Sunday, 12 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Enjoy the twinkling lights from the comfort and warmth of your own car at Jolly Holiday Lights in Waterworks Park. Every day from 5:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Preemptively work off some of those holiday treats at the 4th annual Jingle Jog at Gray’s Lake, Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m.

Dance with sugar plum fairies at The Nutcracker at the Civic Center, Saturday, 2 and 7 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.
