This week, we're talking with Kim Thrush about some of the holiday events coming up in Bishop Hill. Those include the village's Julmarknad (or Christmas Market), this weekend and next; and "Lucia Nights" the weekend of December 8th and 9th. The events are intended to showcase the businesses and artists in Bishop Hill, and to celebrate the village's unique Swedish heritage. Hands-on activities and events for children are also heavily featured.
The Juhlmarknad events run November 24-25, and December 2-3 in Bishop Hill. "Lucia Nights" will be December 8th and 9th.
