Ankeny Unplugged

by Ankeny Real Estate Service

Mark your calendars now!  Ankeny Unplugged starts this Saturday and runs throughout the month of June.  Take it from me, Ankeny area residents, this is an event you DON’T want to miss!

Featuring hot local and regional musical acts, Ankeny Unplugged offers a unique opportunity for friends and neighbors to come together.  This one-of-a-kind music fest has thought of it all -- good music, delicious food vendors, unique arts and crafts, refreshing beverages, sweet confections, a free bicycle valet, and more!

So, what more do you need to know?  Here are a few more details:

● This year’s concert series will take place the first four Saturdays in June at the Bandshell at Wagner Park (410 West First Street).

● Doors open at 4pm and bands take the stage from 5 to 9pm.

● Tickets are $3 at the door OR you can purchase an advance ticket and drink for $6 {here}.  Kids 12 and under are free.

● Ankeny Unplugged is organized by the Ankeny Jaycees, and sponsored by The City of Ankeny.

● This year’s musical lineup can be found at the event’s website (http://ankenyunplugged.com/) and is going to be rocking! 

On a personal note, I recommend dressing in layers, bringing bag chairs and/or blankets, and leaving your own food, drinks, and cigarettes at home!

Now that you know the details, have time to otherwise clear your calendar, AND have been enticed by the promise of awesome entertainment, good food, and a fun time with friends, you have no excuse to miss what is sure to be a great time!

Don't Miss It: The Uptown Ankeny Farmers' Market begins THIS Saturday

by Ankeny Real Estate Service

If you’re like me, then there’s a good chance that you’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for opening day of the Ankeny Farmers’ Market.  Well, good news -- it is FINALLY here!  The Uptown Ankeny Farmers’ Market kicks off this Saturday, May 19 and, rumor has it, this year will be even better than the last!

The Uptown Ankeny Farmers' Market features homemade, homegrown, hand-crafted products and in-season produce. Not only is this open-air market known for the freshest locally grown produce, but each week boasts a variety of offerings. On any given Saturday, you can find meats, baked goods, cut flowers, starter veggie plants, and hanging baskets, along with prepared food vendors, local artists, and entertainers.  When it comes to vendors, no two weeks are the same -- which seems like the perfect excuse to never miss one!

So, what makes the Uptown Ankeny Farmers’ Market unique?  Well, according to regular attendee, Kelly Munter (34, Ankeny), the small-town feel just can’t be beat!  “We love stocking up on our fruits, veggies, and bread for the week without fighting large crowds.  Not to mention, supporting local farmers, the Ankeny community, and our economy is of the utmost importance to us!” 

Well, when you put it like that, the Uptown Ankeny Farmers’ Market sure sounds like a place we would all want to be!
