Christmas Events in Columbia, SC
I'm leading with the events again, because there is so much holiday fun going on this weekend, I can't decide what to do first! I've pulled together the list for all events for the rest of December so you can make your plans too. Here it is: Christmas Events in Columbia.
I've pulled out the usual list of featured events below, so if you only have time for a few things this week, check out our featured "Stuff to do" section below.
We've got a great list of fun stuff to do with your kids this season, but we need your help! We want the most comprehensive list of family fun in Columbia that we can pull together, so if you know of an event that's not on our Columbia Events Calendar, please submit it!
We've got some other fun topics today, so let's get to it! -Scottie Claiborne, Columbia4Kids Editor.>Back to Top of Page
Pets are a popular and lovable gift for the holidays and I'll warn you... don't look at these posts unless you are ready to go adopt! Kim as posted pictures of some of the cutest fur babies that are up for adoption now.
Please remember not to give a pet unless you are sure the recipient can take care of it- we don't want them returned to the shelter after the holidays!
For an alternate but just-as-cute pet, check out a past post from the SC Guinea Pig Rescue.>Back to Top of Page

Whether (like me) you've found that your child has suddenly grown a size and nothing fits, or you'd really like to have something a little nicer for the kids to wear to the family Christmas party, you can find what you need at the Rabbit's Foot Children's Consignment store- and great prices to boot! (Yes, they have boots! And coats and toys...)Back to Top of Page
