a rave-esque festival held in the down town area of des moines in the summer. at 515 alive it's likely to find: break dancing, drinking, graffiti, artists, emo kids, mohawks, lesbians, scene kids, drunks, under-age drinkers and DJs.

the name "515 alive" is an attempt to get rid of des moines' "dead moines" reputation.
I got 4 numbers at 515 alive this year, but I really don't remember who gave them to me. woops.
