The Rhode Island Swedish Heritage Association (RISHA) is reenacting the traditional Swedish St. Lucia festival at St Luke’s church in East Greenwich at 4:00 PM on December 8.

This long-standing event is staged each year and ushers in the holidays for many with a Scandinavian heritage. There are more than 30,000 Rhode Islanders that claim Scandinavian ancestry.

This pageant should prove of interest to anyone with a single drop of Scandinavian blood!
