Family-Friendly Events


Explore the amazing family-friendly events that the Christkindlmarket is offering for you and your loved ones in Aurora this season!

Lantern Parade

For those young and young at heart to experience a cherished German holiday tradition – that’s fun for the whole family!

In November, children in Germany celebrate St. Martin’s Day by carrying lanterns around outside after dark and singing traditional songs. A bit like “trick or treating”, the children are rewarded for their singing and the beauty of their lanterns with sweets and other goodies – in the spirit of the holiday season of sharing and giving. 

Just like the children in Germany, the kids can enjoy a Lantern Parade with the namesake of the market, the Christkind, at the enchanting Christkindlmarket in Aurora at RiverEdge Park on November 26th and/or December 10th. 

Children can join the Christkind for a lantern parade and sing German and English holiday songs
