Spielwelt German Parents Association is a not for profit organisation running children’s programs in German in Canberra
What a wonderful winter walk we all enjoyed. This year’s traditional German lantern walk was a magical evening.
Many volunteers helped to put the event on: providing food, drinks, shopping, cooking and serving on the BBQ, cleaning, providing the audio/visual magic, and much more.
The walk took us along a path lit by lanterns, to a wide circle area in the forest. There we enjoyed more singing together while the children paraded inside the circle with their lanterns, and we heard a special choral performance by the joeys and cubs.
Returning to the hall, we were entertained by a play about Saint Martin who is associated with the lantern walks in Europe.
We are grateful to the ACT government for their ongoing support of this event, through the ACT Multicultural Grants program.
