Here are some events going on all weekend:

  • The Sample Sail at Lake Murray: here’s your chance to try your hand at sailing (or enjoy a guided boat tour) around the beautiful Lake Murray! It’s a two hour ride that is just $30 a person. You do need to call ahead to reserve a spot so make sure to check out their website for all the details here: Lanier Sailing Sample Sail
  • Visit Columbia’s craft breweries. Here are three of our favorites here in Columbia:  Swamp Cabbage BrewingRiver Rat Brewery and Conquest Brewing. If you can gather some friends together, you may be able to catch a ride on the Columbia Brew Bus!
  • Go to the drive-in! We are fortunate enough to have two drive-in theaters in the greater Columbia area this summer! While the Historic Columbia Speedway isn’t featuring anything this weekend, The Big Mo has three different screens and each one has two featured films playing back-to-back! This weekend they’ll also be hosting a fundraiser to support the Monetta Fire Department, they’ll be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers! While this theater is a little further away, it is definitely worth the drive!
