Carry Out Available Swedish heritage is star of dances, food, costumes at affair By CRISTINA JANNEY The Salina Journal LINDSBORG — Crack out some plates and pass the Swedish meatballs. Lindsborg is gearing up for its biennial Svensk Hyllningsfest Oct. 10-12 and the massive smorgasbord that goes with it. The traditional Swedish meal for 1,200 has already sold out, said Don Bengtson, co-chairman. The dinner, starting at 5 p.m. Friday at the Pihlblad Memorial Union at Bethany College, will include 30 Swedish dishes, and orga- nizers plan to serve some 7,000 meatballs, 75 loaves of rye bread, pickled herring, smoked salmon, brown beans and Ostkaka (sometimes described as a Swedish cheesecake) for dessert. The Svensk Hyllningsfest, which means Swedish honoring festival in Swedish, Was started in 1941 to honor the Swedish settlers who founded Lindsborg. "We are honoring the hard work and dedication of those that went before us," Bengtson said. Besides food, traditional dance is another festival favorite. Students practice for weeks getting ready to perform traditional dances at the festival. • First-grade students will play an I See You game, eighth-grade girls will string May poles, and seventh- and eighth-grade boys will do an oxen dance, Bengtson said. He said the dances help the children learn to better appreciate their heritage. This year's featured entertainment will be "Radio Days: Five by Design" at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at Presser Hall at Bethany College. Radio Days is a staged version of a 1940s radio show complete with a flashing applause sign. The performance will take you back to the days of the Lone Ranger and Captain Midnight crackling on the family radio With songs like "Chattanooga Choo- Choo," and "Three Little Fishes." Tickets are $15, $12 and $5 and can be purchased at the Lindsborg Chamber of Commerce, 104 E. Lincoln. Festival organizers have invited 49 craft exhibitors to show their wares and demonstrate their skills during the three-day eveni A couple from Sweden will bring their embroidery work, which includes placemats and tablecloths, to the festival. i Wheat weavers, basket maker!s, makers of Swedish clogs and folk art painters will demonstrate their crafts. "From flags to wood carving,' I think we will have a good variety," said Carol Gusenius, arts and crafts coordinator. ; Festival buttons cost $3 and are good for all festival events except the smorgasboard and Saturday- night entertainment. ; Stage areas are downtown and in Swensson Park.
