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!

The Fall Lover’s Guide to Columbia Pumpkin Patches

Autumn is in the air -- and there’s no better time to explore a pumpkin patch! Those who enjoy fall’s crisp, breezy weather know that no matter your age, this American tradition is not to be missed. Whether you’re planning to bake a pumpkin pie or carve a jack-o-lantern, Columbia offers tons of places to pick your perfect pumpkin...

Northeast United Methodist Church

Located less than 15 minutes away from our Lake Carolina Development, Northeast United Methodist is one of many churches in the area hosting a pumpkin patch. This particular church, however, is known as the “pumpkin patch church”, offering locals over 40 types of pumpkins, Indian corn, and gourds. The patch is open every weekend during the month of October.

Clinton Sease Farm
Venture an hour from our community to experience more than just pumpkins. The little ones will enjoy tractor rides, a corn maze, farm animals, and a giant playground. Those a little older can enjoy a ‘haunted’ Deceased Farm during specific nighttime hours. Guests, of course, can also explore Clinton’s huge selection of pumpkins!

Lever Farms

Just an hour from Lake Carolina lies Lever Farms, home to a spacious pumpkin patch (open every Saturday) that allows guests to pick their own pumpkins or buy from an already picked batch. This farm also offers up a fall-tastic experience, complete with a corn maze, farm animals, tractor rides and even pumpkin bowling.

Lake Carolina’s October Festival

Join our community in making a difference! Lake Carolina’s October Festival, an annual event benefitting those with special needs, includes local vendors, delicious food, live music and--of course--pumpkins! Our event runs from 9am to 1pm on October 15 on the Village Green.

Lake SCarolina

Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 24. We’re hosting our spooktacularly popular event, Lake SCarolina! Come enjoy not-so-scary obstacle courses, hayrides, candy, a cake walk, a pumpkin patch and more!
