Children Needed for Opening Ceremony Procession

Children are an integral component of any Christkindlmarket opening ceremony. Would your child (children) like to follow “Das Christkind” through Christkindlmarket Des Moines to the stage where they will watch the opening ceremony?

Contact Betsy Penisten at betsypenisten@gmail.com with questions and interest. We would like at most 50 children to participate.

Children and parents are invited to gather in the East Entrance of Cap Square at 5:40pm on Friday, December 1, 2017, (please be on time) to receive a luminary and battery-operated candle. Please return the luminaries to a volunteer at the end of the opening ceremony if the child does not wish to take it home.
