Downtown DSM adventurers explored vibrant storytelling and creative installations during the Downtown DSM Adventure Stories series. This series transformed 20 locations in Downtown DSM into the backdrop for five unique adventure stories throughout different neighborhoods, reimagining the city as exciting unfamiliar places like faraway planets and lush green forests.

This activity was free to the public thanks to our sponsor MidAmerican Energy Company.
