Crews are preparing the Brenton Skating Plaza in downtown Des Moines for the summer.
A new canopy is being installed so the venue can host events during warm weather. Crews got to work Tuesday to make the addition.
It will allow the plaza to be reserved for weddings, social events, shows, and concerts. The Music Under the Canopy series will present weekend music festivals at the plaza during the summer.
The plaza should be ready for events on June 1st.
