2019-10-31 Halloween Trunk or Treat

Halloween - Soul Cakes

 

Thursday October 31, 2019    18.00 - 21.00

LiLi Centre, Alpenquai 40a, 6005 Luzern

 

The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives.

On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

 

Come and have a spooky good time with the whole family! We will be decorating the trunks of our cars in celebration of Halloween, as well as handing out sweets to the little ones. Don't forget to wear your best costume—we will be having a costume contest for both adults and kids!

 

 

Schedule: 

18:00 - 18:30 - Decorate cars

18:30 - 19:30 - Trunk-or-treating and "Best of" contest with prizes

19:30 - 22:00 - Adult after-party (drinks available for purchase at the LiLi Centre)

 

Things to Bring

  • Car to decorate, plus Halloween decorations
  • 4-5 bags of candy to pass out
  • Flashlights, pumpkins, spooky music (anything to set the mood)
  • Trash bags to clean up after the event

Prizes Awarded

  • Best Decorated Car
  • Best Costume (Adults & Kids)

 

No need to RSVP for this event, just come and bring your friends! Please email Ursula at ursabel@hotmail.de or call 079 398 48 50 with any questions

This event will be held partially outdoors; please remember to dress according to weather conditions

Wild Blueberry Picking 

 

Sunday 9 August 2020 from 10:00am - 16:00pm

 

Come along for a breath of fresh air and your daily dose of antioxidants.

 

Some of the best local wild blueberry picking lies just a short drive from Luzern outside of the little village of Schoried/Alpnach. These berries freeze very well so you may be eating them clear into 2020! 

 

 

What to bring:

  • Containers for your blueberries (platsic buckets or tupperware containers)
  • Appropriate clothing (long pants are not a bad idea given the underbrush but you'll be fine in shorts as well)
  • Good waling shoes (if they are waterproof even better!)
  • A picnic lunch, drinks and whatever else you will need for an enjoyable day in the woodland glades.
  • Sausage or other meat for the grill: We will be making a fire and you can grill up what you bring

 

What you should know:

This is a remote & rustic location. Toilets are available in Schoried.

 

 

Your Blueberry Spirit Guide: Luke Bragg will be leading this expedition and can be contacted at +41 79 175 7011 or by email at lucasbragg@gmail.com
