A magical lantern walk

Cedar Bridge School invites public to its annual Christmas Faire, Waldorf school

Barbara Articus lights a lantern for Aveline Hladych and Sarah Folland at the Cedar Bridge Lantern Festival held this fall.

In the heart of the fall season, Cedar Bridge School celebrated its annual Martinmas Lantern Festival complete with a magical, candle-lit walk through the forest among the gnomes and fairies who inhabit the hillside there.

It was a lovely stroll complete with each child carrying their own lantern and singing along with the songs associated with this festival. The children each made their own pretzel which was baked and eaten alongside a bowl of hot soup to fill hungry tummies and keep the fall chill away.

A skit depicting the story of St. Martin, the traveling lad who shared his cape with a poor beggar person who was very cold, was acted out by the fireside. The children then each shared a piece of their own food with the hungry beggar as a way to extend and share with someone in need.

The Cedar Bridge Community would love to invite you to their annual  Christmas Faire,  which will take place on Dec. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This fair is a lovely, family-oriented festivity with a puppet show, seasonal activities, artisan wares, handmade toys and food.

Cedar Bridge School is a non-profit organization in its sixth year of operation.  They currently have Waldorf-inspired programs that include parent and child, preschool, kindergarten and Grades 2 to 5.

Cedar Bridge School is at 730 Whitevale Rd. between Lavington and Lumby.
