Thanks for a grant from Wells Fargo and Invest DSM (a non-profit), there is a very cool light display along University near the Drake neighborhood. There was a celebration over the weekend, but the lights will remain illuminated past the holidays into March.
The idea behind the cool light display is to get people to the Dogtown neighborhood where a diverse array of small businesses are located. It's a subtle reminder to shop local and so far it seems to be working! Go check the lights out tonight and until Spring arrives!
