Celebrated in February before the start of Lent, GLSW hosts a large family friendly Faschings Party (also known as Karneval) which includes games and merry making. GLSW teachers and the teenage youth supervise the younger children with bean bag toss, bowling, face-painting and more. Students earn tickets by playing that they can exchange for prizes. Lively music and traditional German food is offered as well, this is definitely one of the most popular events for the adults as well as the children.
