At Ankeny Real Estate Service, we like to refer to ourselves as the Ankeny Specialists when it comes to Ankeny homes.  BUT, that doesn’t mean that our expertise ends with the real estate market. Nope! We are proud to be a long-time, Ankeny-based business, which means our community ties are strong and we are well-versed on all things Ankeny...including local events. 

This year’s ANKENY SUMMERFEST is right around the corner and we think you need to know about it!  However, this 4 day event (July 6 - 9) is just too BIG for us to cram into just one blog, which is why we’ve decided to make this a 2-post series.  Today we’re excited to share with you some of our favorite Summerfest activities, beginning with the events of the first 2 days (July 6 & 7), then finishing up with the final 2 days (July 8 & 90) in our blog post next week.  So, hang onto your hats -- this is going to be fun!

Summerfest 2017 begins with a Thursday evening chock-full of fun!  Here’s the rundown on what Day One has to offer:

● Summerfest on-site carnival and vendors

● Leisure Garden will be playing host to the band, Nice Bangs

● 3-On-3 Youth Basketball Tournament

The Summerfest fun continues on into Friday with a full day of activities offered.  Some of our favorites include:
