Where is the FunFest?
The Columbia4Kids FunFest 2003 will be held in the Irmo Village Shopping center in the grassy area between the center and Future Kids Childcare Center. We thank Carolina Wings for allowing us to use this area for our first ever festival.
To get there, take I-26 to Lake Murray Blvd (exit 102A). Drive in towards Irmo. Just past the railroad tracks, make a right turn on to St. Andrews Rd. Irmo Village shopping center will be 2 blocks up on the left. Just look for the giant sign!
From Lexington, take 6 over the dam. Take a left on to St. Andrews Rd and go down about 2 blocks.

The Columbia4Kids FunFest 2003 will be help on Sunday, April 6 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. In the event of bad weather, the event will be rescheduled for the following Sunday, April 13 at the same time.
