  • Town of Columbia
    Columbia NC 27925


Enjoy the beginning of an old-fashioned Christmas as Columbia and the surrounding area host a weekend of holiday festivities. On Thursday evening, ring in the event on the Courthouse Green or follow the La Posada to their fiesta. Friday evening activities begin on the waterfront with the Lighted Boat Parade and the arrival of Santa Claus. Downtown will be lighted and ready for shoppers and those looking for a great dinner. Saturday is full of sightings of Santa, from breakfast to the afternoon parade through visits at the Columbia Theater. Parents, bring your camera and kids bring your list! Throughout the weekend, music will be enjoyed from carolers to singspirations and concerts. Carriage rides in the historic downtown are a must on Saturday evening, too. If you have a culinary talent, consider the annual culinary arts contest or the gingerbread house workshop. Activities for all.
