The SAL Blog

Working on the salship.se website

The salship.se website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

Midsummer 2012 in New York City

Thoughts in generalPosted by Lars Hemingstam May 04, 2012 17:55:49

Swedish Midsummer Festival
Friday, June 22, 5-8 pm, Wagner Park, Battery Park

Decorate the maypole and learn folk dances from Barnklubben Elsa Rix and Swedish Folkdancers of New York. Enjoy a parade, children’s games and Swedish delicacies.

Note: In accordance with New York City law, alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the parks. Swedish Midsummer Festival is co-sponsored by The Consulate General of Sweden, New York.

Fredagen den 22 juni kommer det traditionsenliga midsommarfirandet att äga rum i Battery Park City på Manhattans södra spets. Vuxna och barn i alla åldrar inbjuds då till parken för att klä midsommarstången, binda blomsterkransar, leka, dansa, eller bara avnjuta en stund i gräset.

Flera av New Yorks bästa svenska restauranger kommer att finnas på plats för att servera traditionella svenska midsommardelikatesser.
