Lexington Columbia Irmo SC Christmas Lights on display

Lexington Columbia Irmo Christmas Lights on display

There was a great article in The State newspaper today about some of the area Christmas light displays around Irmo, Columbia, and Lexington today.  It just so happened that I was headed out this evening with the family to check out a few of the ones listed in the article.  In this area, there really are some great activities to get you in the Holiday mood.  Not only are there some great light displays, but some great events like the Vista Lights, which kicks off the season each November, and The Holiday Market, organized by the Junior League of Columbia as a fundraiser to allow them to support local charities in the Columbia SC area.  My kids especially enjoyed seeing the lights tonight at the Saluda Shoals park and the homes on Hope Ferry Road.  Total cost for entrance was 10.00 and it was a great way to spend a few hours !
Some popular area attractions include the Lights Before Christmas at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden.  This beloved annual event with nearly a million twinkling lights and more than 350 handcrafted images includes photos with Santa, Jingle Bell bonfire marshmallow roast and snow!  It runs nightly from 6-9p.m. through Jan. 3 (closed Dec. 24, 25 & 31) and costs $8 or $6 for ages 3-12. 
Another attraction is the Saluda Shoals Holiday Light on the River and a special event called the Nights of Wonder which runs through Dec. 23 from 6-10p.m.  Children can take part in a hayride, roast marshmellows, ride the train,  slide down the Winter Wonder ride, and visit with Santa.  Admission to the Lights on the River is $10 for cars with a nominal fee for the crafts and concessions. 
Home displays include several homes in the Hope Ferry Road neighborhood of Lexington SC; and 108 May Morning Drive in the Spring Lake subdivision.  In the Harbison/St. Andrews area at 258 Piney Grove Road the display includes a nativity, Christmas trees, large  inflatable Frosty, Mr. and Mrs. Claus and more.  In Gaston at 5320 U.S. 321 there are more than 15,000 lights plus other decorations; and in Cayce/West Columbia SC there are 3 elaborate displays, 1616 Pine St. (Twilight Manor); 509 Moss Creek Drive and 302 Hudson Street in West Columbia. The families decorating these homes are truly into the spirit of the holidays.
