Little Sweden Meets the Big Island
Välkommen turned into a hearty aloha in Lindsborg over the weekend after the Swedish Luau broke out downtown. Merchants and a few big kahunas helped plan the first ever crossover event that celebrates the warmth of the Hawaiian culture during the cold winter in Little Sweden. Island music piped into Main Street speakers while hula lessons, lutefisk limbo and a ukulele play-along added to the mirth factor. Organizer Mike Drier says the inaugural event, filled with food and drink specials, has already laid the groundwork for another Hawaiian punch in 2020.
