The Columbia-based master-planned community will be hosting their annual December event, Harborside Lights, coupled with a 5K to benefit the YMCA.

“Harborside Lights is the perfect holiday event for getting in the Christmas spirit.” -Community Event Director Julia Burley

NE Columbia’s number one master-planned community is bringing holiday cheer to the surrounding area through their annual Harborside Lights event, which will take place on Dec. 12, 2015 in the community’s Town Center. Open to the public and a resident favorite, this year’s Harborside Lights will be in conjunction with a 5K run/walk throughout the properties' illuminated winter wonderland. All proceeds from the run will go toward sponsoring the YMCA’s mission to allow everyone access to their programs and services.

“Harborside Lights is the perfect holiday event for getting in the Christmas spirit,” says Julia Burley, Lake Carolina Properties’ community event director. “Though I’ve enjoyed this event for five years now, I continue to experience the excitement and magic of the lights, luminaries and horse-drawn carriage rides through Lake Carolina. It’s a fun event for people of all ages to enjoy!” Lake Carolina’s annual event will host live holiday performances from local musician Don Russo, Kelly Mill Middle School, and Lake Carolina’s own aerial silks company, Fuel Fitness & Dance. The event will also include three horse-drawn carriages for guests to ride through the beautifully lit neighborhoods of Lake Carolina. Guests can indulge in a number of tasty holiday treats, the community’s elaborate light display, decorated trees and photos with Santa.

Admission to the Harborside Lights festivities is free and 5K participants can pay and register for the run at Lake Carolina Development is home to multiple new home communities, a picturesque freshwater lake, impressive community amenities and a lively Town Center. The development is located in Northeast Columbia, S.C. at 100 Lake Carolina Blvd. Call 803-736-5253 or visit for more information.
