Halloween season is here and Historic Columbia has plenty of spooky events for the whole family!
Scarecrows in the Garden
Oct. 2 - Oct. 31 | Robert Mills Gardens
Scarecrows will take over the Robert Mills House gardens! This free exhibit will feature handcrafted scarecrows made by local families, business, organizations and classrooms. On a stroll through the gardens this fall, you’ll see dozens of ghoulish, historic and colorful scarecrows. This exhibit runs throughout the month of October. Mark your calendars and take a stroll through the garden before it's too late!
Thursday, Oct. 11 | Elmwood Cemetery
Grab your flashlights and join Historic Columbia and Elmwood Cemetery staff for guided tours presenting some of Columbia’s eerie and peculiar past by the light of the moon! Different than the regular monthly tours, Spirits Alive! Cemetery Tours feature costumed tour guides, snacks and other Halloween-related activities.
Trunk or Treat
Friday, Oct. 26 | Robert Mills Gardens
Put on your costume and join Historic Columbia as we bring the fun of Halloween to the Robert Mills House during Trunk or Treat! Children will enjoy trick-or-treating with a twist in a safe and fun environment. Community members and organizations will display decorated trunks filled with candy in the parking lot of the Robert Mills House. Awards and prizes for best costumes and best decorated trunk will be given at 6:45 p.m. Don’t forget to visit the Gift Shop at Robert Mills and check out the Scarecrows in the Garden during this free event.
