Columbia State Park
Celebrate our nation’s birthday the old-fashioned way! Come to Columbia State Historic Park on the 4th of July and participate in the many activities the 49ers enjoyed way back when, especially a glorious parade up Main Street at noon. Enjoy a patriotic concert by the Great Mother Lode Brass & Reed Band, dance in the street, and try your skill at the many contests popular in the early days of Columbia, including the greased pole climb, egg relay race, watermelon eating, bucket brigade, cake walk, nail pounding, egg toss, and a five-way tug-of-war. Come early for the best parking and bring lawn chairs. The festivities begin with a ceremonial flag raising and black powder musket salute at 11 am. Sponsored by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce.
