GISSV San Francisco: SF Laternenfest 2017

For the third time, our San Francisco campus invited GISSV families as well as the general public to its Laternenfest (lantern festival & parade). The school welcomed more than 700 guests to this annual event. It was an enchanting experience to see the beautifully crafted lanterns parading through the Presidio. The student performances, games, scrumptious baked goods, warm "Kinderpunsch" and "Gluehwein" all contributed to making it such a delightful event.

A big thank you to our parent volunteers for lending your time and talents, and thank you to everyone who attended!

Children presented poems, songs, plays and enjoyed a beautiful lantern parade. Thank you to all the teachers and parents for organizing the event. It was wonderful to see everyone. Thank you also to the students who worked so hard to prepare and perform to share the full St. Martin's experience!
