Columbia, South Carolina is the perfect example of a Southern city. With gorgeous downtown areas perfect for strolling, an historic college campus and a military installation, there is always something happening. Grab a cup of fantastic coffee at The Drip on Main Street and let Jeanette Bunn of Travel To Go help plan a fantastic and memorable South Carolina vacation.
1. Greek Festival – Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church welcomes all Columbia visitors and residents to the annual Greek Festival. Held from September 17th through 20th, this event is full of food, entertainment, and shopping. Outdoor vendors offer traditional Greek products as well as ceramics, jewelry, and apparel. Delicious Greek food awaits including gyros, souvlaki, and mezedaki. In the kitchen specialty Greek cuisine is served such as roast lamb, Greek salad, and spanakopita. Pastries are available for dessert, including koulourakia and baklava as well as Greek coffee and wine. Entertainment includes live music from The Aegean Duo and the Nick Trivelas Band, The Warriors of Greece roaming around, and fables with Aesop. There truly is something for everyone.
2. Bike Show – Thunder Tower, in nearby Elgin, South Carolina, is prepared to host the 5th Annual Veterans Car and Bike Show. Held from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, September 19th, all proceeds from this event benefit the AWS Homeless Veterans Program. About 12% of the homeless population is made up of veterans, and fun events like these help to lower that percentage. Jeanette Bunn knows that the events include a silent auction, vendors, and door prizes as well as entertainment and awards. Cash prizes are awarded to the best car and best bike. With admission only $5 for adults and free for kids, this is a great family event.
3. Civil War – A trip to South Carolina wouldn’t be complete without a Civil War Reenactment. September 25th through 27th at the Clinton Sease Farm members of the Palmetto Riflemen and New York Zouaves will reenact history with the Skirmishes at Lexington. This event relives history from Sherman’s Carolina’s Campaign when from February to April 1865 battles raged throughout North and South Carolina. There will be displays showcasing the Lexington Volunteers, historic speakers, children’s activities, and skirmishes. The battles begin at 1:30pm each afternoon.
