BOONE, Iowa — The city of Des Moines has outdoor pianos and soon so will Boone.

According to the Boone News Republican a piano will be set up downtown.

Former Boone High School English teacher Chuck Behm weatherized the piano, along with help from other members of the Central Iowa Piano Technicians Guild, so it can stay outside in the rain.

The piano was also given a colorful paint job.

Behm told the paper he hopes the piano will be a great addition to the city and hopes it will attract people to the area.

The piano will be placed at the corner of Eighth and Story streets in downtown Boone on Wednesday.
