The weather forecast for Friday is good! (Update 12.11.2014)

No Rain on Friday

Lantern Walk postponed!! (Update 10.11.2014)

The weather forecast for tomorrow is too insecure. The forecast for Friday is better. Therefore we decided to postpone the lantern walk to:

Friday 14th of November!! Meeting point: click on map below. Meeting time 17:00. We start with our walk at 17:30 - again: if it´s not raining.


Original post from 4th of Novemeber:

Dear Parents,

Next week, on Tuesday the 11th of November, is the day of St. Martin.
As the namesake of St. Martin I would like to invite you and your children to the nice tradition of the lantern walk again! For a change we will meet this year in the park behind the Barilla Center. Parking is easier here and perhaps it´s a bit darker. The meeting point is indicated on the map below. Meeting time 17:00. We start with our walk at 17:30.

BUT the weather forecast is very bad! It sounds like three weeks ago. One weather forecast indicates 20-50 litres of rain per square meter for the 11th. Therefore it is very likely that we have to postpone the lantern walk to another, later date.
