This year's event had to be rescheduled and will be a school community event:

Lantern Gathering and Stroll
on Friday, November 16 at 4 pm at Funston 5

Please note that this will be a much smaller event. We will not have games, a food truck, or a large crowd, but simply gather around some good food, enjoy the Kibili performing their dance, and singing together on a short lantern stroll through the Presidio.

There will be Glühwein served after the stroll. We will not sell tickets but ask for potluck contributions and appreciate donations.
