Swedish music, art featured in Stockholm
Stockholm will celebrate its Swedish heritage June 26 with a Midsommar Festival complete with dance, art, traditional games and foods, and an evening concert of Scandinavian music.
"In Sweden, this is a celebration of the longest day of the year," said Marian Peterson, a member of the Midsommar Committee. "The sun does not set on that day. ... It is celebrated by songs, games and dancing around the decorated Maypole." The group organized an inaugural celebration last year.
