Post Date:05/05/2017 3:55 PM
The City of West Des Moines invites you to celebrate National Public Works Week on Thursday, May 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Farmers Market in Valley Junction. All the action takes place in the 300 block of 5th Street.

West Des Moines Public Services staff will be on hand to answer questions and help children of all ages explore the big equipment employees use every day to repair streets, plow snow and maintain sewers. Games, a balloon artist, giveaways, treats, and a variety of free activities will be available for everyone to enjoy.

P.W. Paws, the official “tiger” mascot for the American Public Works Association, will be back this year to greet the kids. A mystery guest who is sure to delight the little ones also will be making a special appearance.

National Public Works Week is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services that make our cities better, safer places to live, work and play.
