Tours of Columbia
October 25 - 26
Have you heard that there are ghosts in Columbia? Join us on the tour to find out where they lurk and the stories behind those who lived in Columbia during the Gold Rush. Contact Columbia State Historic Park at 209-588-9128.
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. This free event is sponsored by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, and fun for all ages. Call 209-536-1672 or visit columbiacalifornia.com.
In Columbia’s historic cemetery at 11 am, the Columbia Foot Dragoons explain the significance of Veterans Day and how it came into being, and fire a single volley. Contact Donn Marinovich at 533-3663 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for a walking play that wanders the streets of Columbia at night and ends with music, dance, and refreshments. Make this an annual holiday event for you and your family and learn more about the Christmastime of years past. Contact Columbia State Historic Park at 209-588-9128.
