Columbia's 46th Birthday Celebration and Festival of the Arts today

   

    Somehow the scaled down Columbia birthday celebration makes me fondly remember the old Columbia Fair celebrations that were kicked off with Jim Rouse cutting the birthday cake.  Even though not on the scale of the Howard County Fair it did provide enough food and entertainment for a nice way to kick off the summer season.  June 21st the celebration kicks off at the Columbia Lakefront at 6:30.  Described as,
"Umbrella Art Exhibition, Dancin’ Under the People Tree, cake cutting, children's activities, and more! Make an evening of it and stay for the movie afterward."  Call 410-715-3161 for more information.
    Also beginning this weekend is the Columbia Festival of the Arts. Lots happening at the Festival this year.  Check out this YouTube video for a sampling of the performers.  Many of the activities are free.  Weather this weekend looks great for the Festival.

P.S.
From Howard County Historical Society:
