West Des Moines had some major celebrities come visit on Saturday. The Wahlberg brothers, Donnie, Mark and Paul cut the ribbon on the new Wahlburgers in West Des Moines. They attended a fully produced Grand Opening celebration on Saturday night. This Wahlburgers is the second in the Midwest opened in partnership with Hy-Vee.
The three brothers took the stage and addressed the crowd, about one thousand deep. It was very cool of the guys to come support the Midwest. It, apparently, was Mark who came up with the idea to partner with Hy-Vee. All three lead very busy lives, but found time to make it to the Midwest. Donnie was up filming "Blue Bloods" until 6am Saturday morning and then jetted in. Mark is about to start work on his next film. And Donnie announced that he and the rest of New Kids On The Block would be announcing their tour in October. He promised that the tour will come to Des Moines next year!!
All three spent about thirty minutes taking selfies with fans and signing autographs.
