LWC to host sixth annual Christmas in Columbia event

A Christmas Carnival, is part of Christmas in Columbia

By Jacob Saylor

Lindsey Wilson College will host its sixth annual Christmas in Columbia event in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health and Wellness Center, 299 Williams Street, Columbia, KY, with A Christmas Carnival, 1pm-4pmCT, on December 3, 2016. Santa Claus and his wife Mrs. Claus that afternoon from the hours of 1:30pm-3:30pmCT. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available to take pictures with children in attendance and to keep the Christmas spirit alive and well in them.

This family-friendly event will have plenty of attractions for community members to participate in from vendors selling various items, to kid-oriented events like face painting, ornament decorating, and inflatables.

The first Christmas in Columbia event at Lindsey Wilson was organized in 2011 by Joel Peterson to increase goodwill between the college and the community. The event provides community members and Lindsey Wilson employees the opportunity to collaborate on an event together. This year, Abe Cross, Director of the Health and Wellness Center, oversees the event.

"Christmas [in Columbia] provides an opportunity for Adair County and surrounding communities to come together in a festive environment," Cross said. "Not only does it support the Shop Local movement by giving exposure to local vendors, but it also allows us to build camaraderie and community pride by offering an event that is made possible by the same folks that make South Central Kentucky so unique."

"All of our entertainment comes from local sources. The singing, the cookie decorating, the inflatables, the Storybook Village, and everything else, for that matter, are local people doing what they are good at." Cross said. "Additionally, they are doing it for the children who come out to see us. We have an opportunity to create wonderful Christmas memories for our little ones, and that's something special."
