Swedish Christmas Festival coming to Costa Mesa

The Swedish Women's Education Assn. Orange County branch is hosting its annual Christmas fair Sunday at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Ave.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., children and adults alike are invited to the 30th annual Swedish Christmas Festival to watch the traditional St. Lucia pageant and meet the Swedish Santa Claus, Jultomten.

There will be Swedish foods, from meatballs and ham to baked goods and glogg — a hot, spiced wine — along with music, caroling, dancing and crafts.

All the proceeds will be donated to charity. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children. Parking is free.
