Bishop Hill’s Lucia Nights Celebration was attended by many delighted visitors on December 12 and 13.  People listened raptly to the live music performances of the Peoria Cooperative Academy Chorale, the Mountain Men, the Rusty Pickup String Band, and Hammer and Pick.  Guests also enjoyed stories of Christmas past, as told by Brian “Fox” Ellis.  Shoppers, diners, and museum guests enjoyed the free cookies and drinks passed out by the Lucia girls.  Visitors were also captivated by the sidewalk luminaries and the candle-lighted windows.  Check out photographs of this event by going to our photo gallery or clicking on the following link:
