Christmas in Columbia to celebrate 25th anniversary 5 Dec 2015
Traditional events will include Rotary breakfast, 5K run, Arts & Crafts at Historic Courthouse, artists' open houses, Christmas Carnival at Holloway Center, carriage rides; the 25th Parade Under the Lights, with Korean & Vietnam war veterans as grand marshals, and a Christmas concert by the the Adair County High School 2015 State and National Award Winning Band.
By Brenda Mann, Columbia/Adair County Chamber President
The biggest Chamber event of the year is fast approaching. The planning and excitement are building for this Columbia time tested tradition, 25th Anniversary "Christmas in Columbia" weekend, December 5 and 6.
This year's theme is "What Christmas Means to Me"; a theme that lends a personal perspective of Christmas as it relates to childhood memories, beliefs, values and family traditions. We thank and honor our veterans and are so happy to have Korean and Vietnam veterans as the grand marshals of this year's parade.
Columbia's transformation weekend starts early on Saturday, December 5 with:
To register to participate in the Arts & Crafts in the Courthouse, a parade float, as a Grand Marshal Korean or Vietnam War Veteran, or to be a Christmas in Columbia Sponsor call 270-384-6020, to register an Arts & Crafts booth at the Christmas Carnival at the LWC Holloway Center call 270-384-7380 or to register a Life Size Christmas Card entry for the Columbia Square Christmas Village call the Adair Public Library at 270-384-2472.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 5 and Sunday December 6, 2015 to usher in the Christmas season with the sparkle and shine of the floats, beautiful music, the arrival of Santa Claus, laughter of children, and the warm glow of friendship and family. This weekend of local shopping, dining, arts and crafts, entertainment and fun activities for children and adults highlights the beauty, culture and goodwill of our town and people. We encourage everyone to get involved and help make this year's event the biggest and best ever.
Thank you to Chamber Board members, Debbie Selby and Roger Meadows for chairing this event and to all the sponsors, Chamber members and community volunteers who make this event possible this year, and for the past 25 years!
