Before we all head home to Sweden for the summer, we would like to invite you to celebrate a traditional Midsummer with SACC-LA, The Swedish Church and SWEA at Gilmore Adobe, Farmers Market, 3rd and Fairfax! There will be entertainment, games, bouncing castles, hot dogs, strawberry cake and of course the traditional “små grodorna” dance around the maypole. Don’t forget to bring flowers and greenery from your backyards so we can decorate the maypole. The maypole dancing will start at 6:30pm. We will have room for 100 seated guests that will be served a midsummer plate cooked by Chef Mikael of FoodPerfected Catering. The dinner starts at 7:00pm.
