The German Consulate General Recommends:
Every November, the German-speaking community of Brooklyn and beyond meets at dusk for their 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 they follow a procession through the park to watch a reenactment of St. Martin on horseback, sharing his cloak with the beggar.
In the spirit of St. Martin this event is a fundraiser to benefit a different charity every year. This year’s charity is “The Shoebox Project for Shelters”. A public charity that collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in communities across the US and Canada.
Minimum suggested donation is $10 per child.
Location and time:
Prospect Park near the bandshell and the Ninth Street playground (Entrance on Prospect Park West and 9th)
November 10, 2018 4:45-6:00pm
