Join us for our annual St. Martin's Laternenumzug at the Campus of Alto International School in Menlo Park. We will start with a shadow play about the legend of St. Martin as well as introduce the traditional lantern songs. Following the play everyone is invited to join us for a walk through the neighborhood with their lit lanterns while singing songs. The parade will end with a final song together in a candle light circle.
We will have refreshments, which include Martinsmännchen, Sausages, Pretzels, and Hot Cider will be available for sale before and after the parade.
(Proceeds from the event support the German-American School of Palo Alto)
