A downtown Des Moines street will become the home of a new summer event.

“Welcome Back to Walnut Street” debuts Friday, June 21st on Walnut Street.

The free event will be held between 5th and 6th avenues from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It’ll feature food trucks, street vendors, performers and art.

Walnut Street is getting a major makeover in the near future. Renovations are needed after the DART transit mall moved out of the area.

The plans are still being developed, but there is talk of adding popular retail stores like H & M and Apple.
