Enjoy the upcoming Small Business Saturday and Jingle in the Junction! Following Wednesday’s workshop, we took a slow stroll down 5th Street and were embraced by the magic that is Valley Junction and Historic West Des Moines. The 125,000 holiday lights were a-sparkle amidst the halo of glowing storefronts and stars above! Cheers to the Foundation and all the wonderful merchants on their window displays and festive gear.
