    Back and better than ever! Take afternoon tea like a Londoner here in Des Moines. Afternoon Tea Along the River is a British tea event in an elegant setting with views of the Des Moines River.

    This year, the event includes live violin music, a talk from an expert on tea traditions, a raffle and a live auction.

    The silent auction includes items from several Christkindlmarket Des Moines vendors including Quilted Gardens, Lost Planet Forge, Damonlayne Woodworking, Andy Klimt-Chainsaw Carvings and Dakota Tinworks.
