Santa Lucia Festival
In Scandinavia “Santa Lucia” is celebrated in December, but in Astoria, this winter festival of lights is celebrated the day after Thanksgiving to tie in with the opening of the Christmas season. Nordic-Viking-Scandia dancers will perform several choreographed dances and Faith Swanson will accompany a carol sing-along on the piano. The new Scandinavian Midsummer Festival Court will be introduced. The evening will continue with refreshments provided by VASA Swedish Lodge and public dancing in the Commons. You do not have to be Scandinavian to participate and enjoy this fun evening. Everyone is invited to leave the Thanksgiving leftovers and shopping and come listen to good music, sing some Christmas Carols, mingle with friends and dance.
Admission is $1 or $5 per family with all admission funds going to the Scandinavian Festival Scholarship Fund.
