German tradition tells of a Roman Soldier, Martin of Tours, who cut his cloak in half for a beggar during a cold winter's storm. In honoring his noble act, we will build lanterns and sing songs, followed by a parade with St. Martin and his horse!

4:00 – 5:00 p.m.: Lantern crafting (Fee per child: $10)*

5:00 – 6:00p.m.: Parade with St. Martin

*If you bring your own lantern, the parade is free.
