Jolly Holiday Lights is one of Des Moines' favorite holiday traditions. Open nightly from 5:30 to 10pm. Just $10 per carload with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you haven't been there yet, mark your calendar for Wednesday, December 28th as this is the evening that the Capital Striders will be volunteering at the gate. We would love to see you and you would be supporting a great cause. We still have room for a couple more volunteers, if you want to help and don't mind frigid temps and crazy board members send an email to
