Columbia Heritage Festival
Vendors displayed their 19th century themed craftsmanship and children learned to walk on stilts.
Vendors like Nancy Watson enjoyed wearing period dress. "This is an outfit that would have been worn in the middle of the 1800s," she said.
Close to 18,000 turned up for the event, which is sponsored annually by the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.
The two-day festival is free and will continue on Sunday.
