The Annual Sankta Lucia Festival of Lights representing Astoria’s Nordic Heritage traditionally takes place the Friday following Thanksgiving. As tradition holds, Lucia will lead her Attendants and Star Boys in a lighted procession and make her time-honored Holiday Season declaration to the Astoria community. This year’s Lucia bride is Raelee Telen, runner-up to Miss Scandinavia 2022. The Celebration includes Christmas carols, lighting of the Christmas tree, festive music by the Polk Dots, and dancing. Refreshments for this event will be provided by Astor Vasa Lodge #215. All are welcome to join in the festivities.
