Downtown DSM Adventure Stories
September 8, 2021
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until September 8, 2021
Be a Downtown Des Moines (DSM) adventurer and explore vibrant storytelling and creative installations during the Downtown DSM Adventure Stories series! This series gives Greater Des Moines (DSM) visitors and residents an opportunity to experience more than 20 locations in Downtown DSM in a new way — as the backdrop to five unique adventure stories throughout different neighborhoods. Participants can watch the stories unfold before their eyes and transform the city into exciting new places like faraway planets and lush green forests.
All Downtown DSM Adventure Stories encompass four to six chapters. Each chapter will be marked on-site with visuals that include a special QR code. Adventurers will use their smart phone to scan each QR code, which opens the corresponding chapter in the story. Every chapter will include an interactive Adventure Challenge activity, like sketching or photography, that allows adventurers to engage even further with a story. A clue at the end of the chapter will lead to the next stop on the journey.
