Food, fun and culture are all part of the holiday season in Columbia. Experience Lake Carolina’s greater community with these local holiday events:

29th Annual Chili Cook-Off
A warm bowl of chili is the perfect comfort food during the Thanksgiving season. Before your day of thanks, head to Five Points for a delicious celebration of fall. Enjoy drinks, live music, a kid’s carnival and, of course, over 40 chili recipes to sample.  

The Nutcracker 

Columbia’s longest-running annual arts event is the perfect dash of holiday magic. Each year, the Columbia City Ballet presents the beloved production of “Nutcracker”. Don’t miss out on one of the ballet’s seven performances.

Holiday Lights on the River
Take a drive through a winter wonderland. This acclaimed display offers the chance to see Saluda Shoals Park transformed into a spectacle of over one-million sparkling lights! A holiday train, hayride, laser show and craft center are only a few of the ‘cool’ activities included.

Lights Before Christmas 

In similar fashion, both kids and adults will love the astounding showcase of nearly one-million twinkling lights decorating the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden. Experience sparkling displays, hot cocoa, a bonfire and a visit from Santa Claus himself.

Harborside Lights & YMCA 5K
Lake Carolina’s very own festive event comes in the form of the annual Harborside Lights celebration. Gather in the Town Center for a dazzling dose of holiday cheer. Plus, participate in a 5K walk/run around our decorated community. Put this as a “must” on your calendar today! 

Famously Hot New Year 
End (or begin) your holiday celebrations with this popular event. It’s South Carolina’s largest NYE party and draws in thousands of guests to enjoy live music, vendors and an epic fireworks display. It's an unforgettable way to ring in the new year!
