The parade at 10 a.m. Saturday on Beaver Avenue is just one highlight of this weekend’s Beaverdale Fall Festival, one of the city’s oldest and largest neighborhood events. The annual autumnal tradition started more than 40 years ago and now includes enough activities to occupy even the busiest of beavers, including live music, food vendors, a carnival, an exhibit from the Des Moines Children’s Museum, an “electrifying” demonstration from the Science Center of Iowa, yoga and dance classes, axe throwing, the 17th annual literary trivia tournament hosted by Beaverdale Books, an animal blessing organized by Westminster Presbyterian Church — and so much more. Admission is free.
