4th Annual Laternelaufen in Central Park to benefit Pusteblume!! Monday, November 11th @ 5pm

Wir gehen mit unseren Laternen……. the tradition continues!

Come join us for the traditional German Lanternparade, the St. Martin’s Parade.

It’s that time of year and our lanterns will once again illuminate the park. Colorful lights, music and singing, and yummy cookies in the shape of the St. Martin’s goose will be in full swing!

This year will be extra special as we celebrate on the actual St. Martin’s Day as well as remember some other men and women engaged in selfless acts: our veterans. And we heard you! The parade will be longer this year with more singing, chances to interact and a wonderful play telling the story of St. Martin’s.

The cost to participate is $20 per family and all profits will go to benefit Pusteblume. Bring your own lantern, or buy one there.

Please sign up for this wonderful community event at Manhattan German Playgroup.
