Twinkling lights and grand luminaries shine bright on Lake Carolina!

Lake Carolina's 8th annual Harborside Lights celebration brings holiday tradition and family fun together. On Saturday, December 10, 2011 hundreds of visitors will come to Town Center and the Village Green to experience the holiday magic. Photos with Santa, horse-drawn carriage rides, thousands of lights and decorated trees, warm food, live music and holiday shopping take center stage.

Gather around the dozens of decorated trees, sit cozy by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa and listen to the songs of carolers as they echo through the village. Treat yourself to sugar cookies and egg nog and curl up under the stars (and a blanket) while enjoying a holiday outdoor movie.

Harborside Lights is a FREE event and open to the public. Bring your friends, your family, even your dog and come experience a holiday tradition like no other at Lake Carolina. 

Lake Carolina is located at 100 Lake Carolina Boulevard, in Columbia, South Carolina. Complete details can be found at

*Pick up your Christmas tree on the way out with a tree from Toe River Lodge.
