St. Martin's Lantern parade during German Christmas market, Christkindlmarkt Salt Lake City, at This Is The Place Heritage Park

This parade celebrates the historic story of St. Martin who was known to cut his coat in half to share with a beggar. The parade will include children and youth who have participated in service singing Christmas carols while marching through the market with illuminated lanterns. They will be joined by Pamela Atkinson, Salt Lake’s own “Mother Teresa”. Pamela Atkinson has dedicated her life to serving those in need in our community. We invite you to join with us and march in the parade. Please contact christkindlmarktslc@gmail.com if you would like to participate in the parade.
