This weekend is opening weekend for Saluda Shoals Park Holiday Lights on the River, which features more than 400 themed, animated light displays on a 2-mile drive-through loop of the park. The park is at 5605 Bush River Road and is open 6-10 p.m. through Dec. 31.
For more lights, visit Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Gardens, open from 5-9 p.m. through Dec. 30 (closed Dec. 24 and 25). Or you can go to Swan Lake-Iris Gardens in Sumter for the Fantasy of Lights, featuring more than a million lights and 150 lighted figures – and it’s free.
On Sunday, North Columbia’s 30 neighborhoods will host a craft and gift sale and holiday performances, beginning at 2 p.m., and the lighting of the Christmas tree, beginning at 5:30 p.m. At North Main Street and Monticello Drive
