BounceHouseUpper East Side, Columbia, S.C. – Over Father’s Day weekend we had my daughter’s fifth birthday party at our home in Longcreek Plantation. Supreme Bouncers provided us with a great Disney Princesses jumping house. It was a huge hit!

Check out this Northeast area business, Supreme Bouncers, for a great selection, great prices, and great service on recreational bouncers.

This week we’ve got a Chamber event where you can win a spotlight on this very blog! Read below for details and come out and support the business community of Northeast Columbia this week.

FarmersMarket1The Farmer’s Market is getting into full swing at the Clemson Extension campus on Clemson Road. Come out and meet local growers, crafters, and artisans. There’s live music, boiled peanuts, plants for the yard as well as soaps, breads, and veggies.

The Farmer’s Market is open from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. every Tuesday through September.

Business After Hours took place last week at Quaker Steak & Lube. Thanks to our hosts and to everyone who made the event a success! We are taking a break from after hours in July but hope to see you out again in August for a post-work beverage and networking.

Making your July 4th plans now? Don’t forget to include Village at Sandhill’s “Freedom Festival presented by Grow Financial Federal Credit Union.” The event begins at 1 p.m. with games, rides, balloon art, glitter tattoos, and inflatable rides for the kids. Stay for the duration and see exhibits by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, live music from 5:30 until 9:30 and the Midlands best fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.

“Freedom Festival presented by Grow Financial Federal Credit Union” is totally free and open to the public.
