Weekend Planner

Welcome to our weekly Thursday morning post about what's going on in the Des Moines, Iowa area. We'll share what we'll be doing, great finds, restaurants to eat at, shops to drop some cash at, and just all the great things Des Moines has to offer families
What We're Doing:
Other Happenings:
  • Covered Bridge Festival (Winterset, IA)
  • Upcycle! Greenwood/Ashworth Park. You're finding invasive species and upcycling them into food for the animals at the Blank Park Zoo. 
  • High Trestle Hawk Watch (High Trestle Bridge in Madrid, Iowa). Don't care to watch for hawks? Just walk across the bridge then--great exercise and great views!
  • Opening night for the Iowa Wild.
  • Vintage and Made Fair.
  • Fall Food Truck Showdown (Friday - Saturday, Pappajohn Sculpture Park)
Other Ideas (for those not in Des Moines or those who want to relax a bit):
