SOLVANG’S CELEBRATION OF SAINT LUCIA DAY IS A NEW ADDITION TO THE JULEFEST CALENDAR OF EVENTS FOR 2019!


SAINT LUCIA DAY IS A FEAST DAY CELEBRATED TO HONOR THE 3RD CENTURY MARTYR KNOWN FOR BRINGING FOOD AND AID TO CHRISTIANS HIDING IN CATACOMBS DURING THE DIOCLETIANIC PERSECUTION.


THE PARADE PROCESSION WILL BEGIN WITH A YOUNG WOMAN, “SAINT LUCIA”, DRESSED IN ALL WHITE, A RED SASH, WITH A CROWN OF CANDLES ON HER HEAD. SHE WILL LEAD A LARGER PROCESSION OF WOMEN HOLDING CANDLES.
