Bethel Lutheran hosts annual Scandinavian Food Festival
River Falls Wisconsin 2815 Prairie Drive / P.O. Box 25 54022

Bethel Lutheran Church, founded in 1873 by Hudson families of Norwegian descent, held its annual Scandinavian Food Festival at the church’s Bethel Highlands campus last Friday and Saturday.

Hundreds of church members and friends turned out to sample the fare, which included open-face rullepolse sandwiches, fruit soup, rice pudding, meatballs, lefse, aebleskivers, sugary cookies and more.

Home-baked goods were also available for sale, and went fast.
