Columbia is home to the 58th annual Carolina Carillon Holiday Parade
which is scheduled for this Saturday, December 3rd. The parade kicks off at 9:45 AM at the intersection of Gervais and Bull streets. It will continue west on Gervais, passing in front of the State House and then into the Vista. The parade features dozens of floats, marching bands, live performances, and of course – Santa Claus!
Can't make it to Columbia to see the big event? Live coverage of the parade will be aired in over 40 counties since it is the official holiday parade of South Carolina – so check your local listings!
Many thanks to photographer Frederick Austin
, who took this snowy shot during a rare white Christmas in December 2010.
