Location Map



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.
