The City of West Columbia is hosting the 17th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Friday, December 3, 2021, at 6:30 PM, at West Columbia City Hall, 200 N. 12th Street, West Columbia, SC.
Each year, West Columbia area elementary schools hold a “What Christmas Means to Me” contest. The essay winners from each school are recognized at the tree lighting and will read their winning essays or poems. In addition to the writing contest, there is a student artwork contest. The winning artwork entry will be featured on the cover of the event program. The top three entries will be displayed on the Art on State wall on the corner of State and Meeting Streets.
The program will include Christmas carols, greetings, and the lighting of the West Columbia Christmas Tree.
