Laternenfest, November 8!

Join us for a centuries-old German tradition of songs and brightly-colored lanterns to celebrate Martin’s Tag! We will have a lantern parade and refreshments will be available.

We will meet on Saturday, November 8 at Pioneer Park in Novato (map it) at 5:30 p.m. The parade is free! Only $5 per person if you would like a cup of hot chocolate and a "Weckmann" (jumbo bread man) afterward.

We’ll meet at Pioneer Park to light our lanterns (with flameless candles) before strolling through the park. Afterwards we will have hot chocolate and Weckmaenner available if desired.

Everyone is welcome, so bring friends! Help us plan! Please RSVP by email, call 415.897.9771, or let us know during school on Saturday if you would like to join us and would like a Weckmann. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
