For some, the holiday season in Columbia just doesn’t get started until Five Points hosts its annual holiday event, A Starry Night.
This year, the event will be held 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1. Patrons can stroll through all of their favorite Five Points stores to enjoy sales and specials during a night full of holiday cheer. From home goods, jewelry, and clothing to baked goods and wine, the Five Points merchants have everything patrons could possibly want for the holidays.
