The feast of St. Martin of Tours is celebrated on November 11th, and in Germany this day is traditionally celebrated with a parade, where children sing songs about St. Martin and walk with decorative lanterns. The German Society's parade is held on the Sunday closest to St. Martin's Day. Children gather at the Society to read stories and have snacks, then march with their lanterns through Northern Liberties neighborhood to Liberty Land Park while singing traditional songs.
