Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai

Colonial Life Arena, 801 Lincoln St. Columbia, SC 29201

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind. The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies-the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai. TICKET PRICES: Prices range from $122 to $29.50. Event Times: Wed, Nov 5 7:30 pm Thu, Nov 6 7:30 pm Fri, Nov 7 7:30 pm Sat, Nov 8 4:00 pm Sat, Nov 8 7:30 pm Sun, Nov 9 1:30 pm Sun, Nov 9 5:00 pm

Voices of the Generations

Katie & Irwin Kahn JCC, 306 Flora Drive, Columbia SC 29223

Voices of the Generations a special program in remembrance of Kristallnacht Hanna and Walter Kohner had one of the few Holocaust stories with a happy ending. The two were childhood sweethearts in Czechoslovakia before the war, with big plans for the future. When Hitler’s armies closed in, Walter managed to get to the States, where his brothers were living. Hanna was arrested and miraculously survived internment in four concentration camps, including Auschwitz. After the war, Walter learned from an American sergeant who helped liberate her that Hanna was still alive. He eventually found her in Amsterdam, and they were soon married. Settling in Los Angeles in 1946, Walter became a theatrical agent, and with Hanna wrote their amazing story, Hanna and Walter, A Love Story, published by iUniverse Press in 2008. Julie Kohner carries on their legacy by telling her parent’s story to school and community groups throughout the country. Her presentation, Voices of the Generations, has won raves from rabbis and educators. Julie recounts the story, shows a video about her parents that was broadcast as an episode of This Is Your Life in 1953, and answers questions about her parents and the Holocaust.

Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai

Colonial Life Arena, 801 Lincoln St. Columbia, SC 29201

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind. The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies-the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai. TICKET PRICES: Prices range from $122 to $29.50. Event Times: Wed, Nov 5 7:30 pm Thu, Nov 6 7:30 pm Fri, Nov 7 7:30 pm Sat, Nov 8 4:00 pm Sat, Nov 8 7:30 pm Sun, Nov 9 1:30 pm Sun, Nov 9 5:00 pm

Holiday Taste & Tour ~ Lower Richland Heritage Corridor - 8th Annual

Historic Village of Hopkins, 214 Hopkins Road, Hopkins, SC 29061

There is something magical during Taste & Tour time! The Village of Hopkins comes alive. SERCO’s 8th Annual Holiday Taste & Tour promises to bring a memorable “Old Fashioned Christmas” to the historic Village of Hopkins on Saturday, December 6, 2014, from 12:00 Noon until 4:00 p.m. The Village is located just 11 miles from Columbia at 214 Hopkins Road, and intersecting Lower Richland Boulevard. History tells us that this was once a bustling location, originally named “Hopkins Turnout” between 1836 and 1842, when the South Carolina Railroad from Charleston completed a turntable there. Through the 1920’s, the Village of Hopkins was thriving with general stores, gin mills, industries, residences and a Town Hall. SERCO has taken on a labor of love to recreate a similar atmosphere. This year, we have an Honorary Santa! Richland County Councilmember Kelvin Washington, District 10, will lead SERCO’s “Stuff a Wagon” drive to collect and fill 200 Christmas Stockings on behalf of the Salvation Army. Donors may drive-thru and drop off gifts. Youth and other volunteers from Lower Richland High School & JROTC, Eastover’s Elevations Youth Group and other local youth will be stationed to accept items. But, we expect you’ll want to park and join us for a day of fun … There is a full schedule of FREE activities for guests, including delicious FREE Food Samplings: BBQ Cook Off, Adluh Flour Pound Cake Bake-Off, Cooking Demonstration by SC Ambassador Chef Brandon Velie, Carriage-Carnival & Trackless Train Rides, Stage Entertainment, Local History Museum, Vendors for gifts, crafts, flea/farmers markets, and Oyster Roast. Oh! –also new is our UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER Contest! FREE parking is available next to the event site, and shuttle service is provided.
