St. Martin’s Day is commonly celebrated in German-speaking countries in preschools and elementary schools with a charming lantern parade. Kinderstube kids will be making their own lanterns and cookies to share as part of the event.
The origins of this tradition include the story of Martin of Tours, a Roman soldier who shared his cloak with a cold beggar on a winter’s night. This story offers an opportunity to talk about kindness and generosity with children, and is also a time for our community to gather, sing, and spend time together around a bonfire.
Everyone is welcome to meet for a re-enactment of the St. Martin story, singing, Laternenlauf through the neighborhood, and some time around the campfire. Join us in celebrating this fun German tradition.
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
