The Scandinavian Midsummer Festival Court consists of Miss Scandinavia 2018, junior and senior princesses sponsored by the Danish Society, Finnish Brotherhood, Sons of Norway and VASA Swedish Lodge, chaperones, and a crown bearer. These young women and young man serve as festival ambassadors to visit local lodges, churches, and services groups to spread the word of the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival. They also travel to out-of-town festivals to participate in parades. At 7 PM on Friday, June 22, at the Queen Coronation, the princesses and crown bearer will speak about their Scandinavian heritage. A panel of judges will select a senior princess to reign as Miss Scandinavia 2019. Soloists from the community will sing the national songs of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The Nordic Viking Dancers will perform traditional folk dances. Afterwards there is a Torchlight Procession to the Bonfire where everyone can throw a hex in the fire to rid oneself of bad luck for the year. The evening will continue with a family-friendly Queen’s Ball with live music. Come early at 5 P.M. to enjoy live entertainment featuring the musicians from Scandinavia.
