Events St. Martin’s Lantern Walk in Prospect Park
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.
