Every year, the college of the mayor and aldermen of the city of Luxembourg invites local associations to participate in the torchlight procession (“Fakelzuch”) on Thursday, June 22, on the eve of the National Holiday, to celebrate the Grand Duke’s birthday.
Out group participates as well.
Paper lantern & torches
It has been decided that our Biber will get a paper lantern and our Wëllefcher a torch. Please tell your kids in advance.
The scout uniform
As this is an official event, we will wear the full scout uniform (green scout shirt, scout scarf and blue jeans (or similar))
However, our Biber (6-7 years) do not need to buy a uniform as they grow out rather quickly. They can buy a scout branded t-shirt instead at the scout shop.
The address of the scout shop (Maison Lessure) is:
1, rue Origer
Opening hours: Monday – Saturday from 10h to 18h
|18h15||Scouts dropped off by their parents at the Luxexpo Tram stop.|
|+/- 18h30||Ride with the tram + walk to Scouts of Limpertsberg |
(85, avenue Pasteur L-2311 Luxembourg)
|19h||Barbecue at Scouts of Limpertsberg & walk to the city center|
|+/- 21h20||Start of the “Fakelzuch”|
|+/- 22h30||End of the “Fakelzuch”|
