While walking around Columbia Town Center, you notice a chill in the air, maybe even some snow, and festive lights are popping up around the neighborhood. This could only mean one thing: the holiday season is officially here! Columbia Town Center is excited to unite the community for the holidays and bring everyone together for some festive fun. Many holiday events are happening this month in Columbia Town Center and throughout Howard County. Here are some events you can look forward to this season.
Columbia Association and the Downtown Columbia Partnership are excited to bring the annual, family-themed Festive Fridays back to the Downtown Columbia Lakefront in 2023. For three Fridays in December, visit the Lakefront to enjoy Ice sculptures, Choral music, a fire pit, S’mores Kits, and more! Bring the whole family and join us for all the fun! RSVP on the events calendar to let us know you’re coming!
