Every November, the German-speaking community of Brooklyn and beyond meets at dusk for our beloved Lantern Walk through beautiful Prospect Park. Children and their families come from all over the New York metro area, equipped with their often handmade glowing lanterns. After singing the traditional songs we follow a procession through the park to watch a reenactment of St. Martin on horseback, sharing his cloak with the beggar.
Where: Prospect Park near the bandshell and the Ninth Street playground (Entrance on Prospect Park West and 9th)
In the spirit of St. Martin this event is a fundraiser to benefit a different charity every year.
Minimum suggested donation is $10 per child. Thank you!
