FULLY BOOKED FOR 2023! REGISTRATION CLOSED.
St. Martin is celebrated in Germany for his legendary act of kindness—sharing his cloak with a beggar on a cold winter night. This selfless gesture has become a symbol of compassion and generosity.
In Germany, children honor St. Martin’s legacy through lantern events, a tradition dating back to the 19th century. It’s now a cherished custom where kids craft vibrant lanterns and come together for parades, brightening the streets with light.
This year, the Vancouver Christmas Market is bringing this tradition to life! Join us in our Lantern Festival parade, led by our mascots Holly & Jolly! Register Below.
Fully Booked for the 2023 Season
Due to high demand, we have closed registration for this year’s lantern parade. We will be contacting all those who registered soon. Unfortunately, due to limitations in our permit, we are unable to accommodate any additional visitors.
