Christmas Comes to Columbia County


Evans, Georgia (November 6, 2020) – Christmas in Columbia County kicks off this month!

Evans Towne Center Park will be transformed, once again, into a winter wonderland, offering holiday lights and activities for all ages.

The park-wide walk-through light display will be available from 5pm on Thanksgiving Day through the New Year.  Park patrons are invited to enjoy several events and attractions throughout this time.

Festivities begin on December 5th with on-stage performances by Columbia County Middle and High School Band and Choir students. These performances will take place throughout the day, 9am until 9pm, and vendors will be on site as a part of this year’s Holiday Market.
