Vista Lights

The Congaree Vista’s signature open house kicks off the holiday season with artistic performances, live music and dancing. More than 60 galleries, shops and restaurants will open their doors to showcase their holiday treasures before the Vista’s tree lighting with our mayor. Many businesses will offer complimentary beverages, hors d’oeuvres and shopping discounts, and Vista Lights attendees are invited to stroll through the Vista’s art galleries and businesses, restaurants and bars on this festive evening.

The evening’s highlight will be a tree-lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. at the intersection of Gervais and Lincoln, featuring Columbia’s mayor and other dignitaries. Be there by 6:30 p.m. to see the music and dance performances that will be opening for the lighting.

Come early and stay late for a scavenger hunt and the chance to win big prizes. You will also find music throughout the streets and special performances throughout the Vista’s shops, restaurants and businesses.
