Stories In Stone Cemetery Tour
October 3 @ 7:00 pm - October 4 @ 8:00 pm| $25
Guided tour of the Columbia Cemetery after dark by costumed docents holding lanterns. Guests will stop at specific gravesites where stories of those who have lived and died in Columbia will be told by some very convincing characters! Reservations required and tickets are $25 per person. Contact Columbia State Historic Park at 209-588-9128.
Join us for a cornucopia of crafts, comestibles, demonstrations of skills, and music and dancing on the shady streets of Columbia State Historic Park, decorated for the harvest season. Almost fifty vendors, dressed in 1850s attire, will display their handmade arts and crafts for sale, including pottery, jewelry, apparel, home décor, wood furniture, baked goods and many others; and some will demonstrate their skills. Attractions include demonstrations of spinning and weaving by the Mother Lode Weavers & Spinners, face painting, a petting zoo, and entertainment by various local groups of musicians and dancers. Sponsored by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. Call 209-536-1672 or visit columbiacalifornia.com.

Carve your pumpkins, turning them into classic peg-toothed grinners, artfully chiseled ghouls, leering witches, or any family-friendly design of your choosing. Bring your carved gourds to the Columbia Museum on Main Street for judging, and enjoy the live musical entertainment. Halloween costumes are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for the most original, most gruesome, most entertaining, etc., and at dusk the jack-o’-lanterns will be illuminated.
