Now in its fifth year, the Chelmer Station Community Kindergarten will be hosting Lantern Parade 2018 and everyone is invited!

This tradition has become a favourite for many families in Chelmer and nearby suburbs such as Sherwood, Graceville, and Corinda. The parade is inspired by Germany’s lantern parade held on Saint Martin’s Day when children from community Kindergartens come together to walk with their lanterns after dark.

In Germany, the celebration happens every 11 November, however, in order for the event to be done in the most successful way possible, the date has been tweaked according to the city’s climate and season so participants can fully enjoy the celebration.

Children are invited to create and bring their own lanterns to show off during the parade. It will be a great way to keep children busy and creative.

The event will be on 22 June at the Faulkner Park Netball Courts. It will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:00 p.m. The actual parade will begin at 6:00 p.m.

There will be delicious German food, music, and drinks available at the event.
