Each November, the German-speaking community of Brooklyn and beyond meets at dusk for the beloved Lantern Walk through beautiful Prospect Park. In the spirit of St. Martin this event is a fundraiser to benefit a different charity every year. 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 it follows a procession through the park to watch a reenactment of St. Martin on horseback, sharing his cloak with the beggar.
This years 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.
