Swedish summer

The summer solstice occurs Friday at 7:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time. Sweden, where the solstice is a bit more noticeable than it is here, knows how to celebrate: with a maypole! If you’d like to experience this for yourself, head down to Wagner Park in Battery Park City this Friday from 5 to 8 pm for the Swedish midsummer festival. Paul Dahlin & Friends will provided traditional fiddle music, and they’ll have dancing, children’s games, and crafts. Sponsored by BPC Parks and the Consulate General of Sweden.
