Is there a mayfly festival in Columbia's future?

The seemingly endless swarms of mayflies invading Columbia and Wrightsville have inspired some local residents to look into the possibility of a joint Columbia-Wrightsville mayfly festival to be held in the near future. Although the venture is still very much in the discussion and planning stages, a public meeting will be held at Columbia Cones and More on Monday, August 10 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the idea further.  According to Scott Creek, proprietor of Columbia Cones and More as well as one of the group's organizers, residents are invited to the meeting and ideas are welcome.

  1. Instead of creating yet another festival, perhaps it would be better to modify an already existing festival (like the crafts fair). Then you can work in some Mayfly themes without trying to create something from scratch.
