Christmas in Columbia planning begins now for participants
There'll be those who fuss at me for saying the word 'Christmas' when we just got through with Halloween, but this article is given for the planners, crafters, early gift shoppers and parade designers who may need every minute of the month of November to be ready. Christmas in Columbia has grown into a major marketing day for many small businesses.
By Linda Waggener
For those who want to start planning to be part of the annual Chamber of Commerce Christmas in Columbia, this year's theme is "A Bluegrass Christmas" and the full day of activities happens Saturday, December 2, 2017. Events kick off at 6:30amCT with the Edgar Troutman Memorial Rotary Breakfast at the Columbia Baptist Church, 201 Greensburg Street, Columbia. Breakfast continues until to 9:30amCT with a $5 per person charge.
About the time they begin to run short on biscuits and gravy at the breakfast, the historic Adair County Courthouse opens for the Adair Heritage Association Christmas Arts and Crafts sale, a favorite for early Christmas shoppers. Hours are 9amCt until 2pmCT.
Food will be offered in the Courthouse, homemade Chili & Soup, soft drinks and Desserts for a donation.
The popular Children's Christmas Carnival will begin at 1pmCT at Lindsey Wilson College's Holloway Health and Wellness Center, 299 Williams Street, Columbia, KY, and go on until 4pmCT. It offers arts & crafts, children's crafts and cookie decorating, Christmas stories, Inflatables, and many other children's activities. Santa arrives at 1:30pmCT.
The Christmas in Columbia Parade begins at 6:00pmCT led by Grand Marshal Sue Cravens Stivers who is retiring this year from her position as Chamber Executive Director. For details on entering, line-up and parade judging times, call Kathy at the Columbia Adair County Chamber of Commerce 270-384-6020.
The lead parade vehicle will make a stop on the square at 6:15pmCT for the official Lighting of the big Christmas Tree by the fountain provided and decorated by the Columbia Christian Church. With this activity, the Christmas in Columbia season begins.
