DES MOINES, IA – Buckle up Des Moines, Banana Ball is coming back. The wildly popular Savannah Bananas are making an encore trip to the capital city in 2024, returning to Principal Park on September 6, 7, and 8. After quickly selling out two dates this year and becoming the hottest ticket in town, the TikTok darling have added an additional date to accommodate their growing fanbase.
