  • Caughman Farms Breeding Center
    Harnessing the equine expertise of two renowned members of the Professional Horsemen's Association, Caughman Farms advances students of all skill levels in both English and Western riding styles. The content and length of each lesson will depend on the student's individual experience, rate of improvement, and collection of tasseled chaps, but all pupils will learn the basics of horse care, cleaning, and equipment. The mild-mannered canter of a retired juvenile competition horse permits fledgling steed steerers a large margin of error and level of comfort. Two instructors accompany small children to ensure each tyke's safety and feeling of security while instilling the important life lesson that all good things come in stereo. Leaving behind the small, covered beginner area, more advanced equestrians can gallivant around the spacious indoor arena atop a homebred stallion.

  • Columbia QuadSquad Rollergirls
    An all-female, flat-track roller-derby team, the Columbia QuadSquad Rollergirls aim to defend their state title with a vengeance each night they blaze in eight-wheeled fury through Jamil Temple. In each night's lineup of matches, the Miss B-Havers, CQS's secondary squad, will take the rink first, followed by the Allstars, so named because of their cosmological egalitarianism. During each jam, CQS attempts to send its star-helmeted jammer through the crowd to gain control, where she can score points by lapping opponents. Meanwhile, four blockers assist the jammer's cause by escorting adversaries to a date with linoleum. The hits are real, and referees see to it that they are legal, or else players will be sent to the penalty box where they must endure two minutes of wearing nose plugs made of Vegemite.

  • Slow Food Columbia
    The Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival celebrates tomatoes of all colors and shapes with an evening of tomato-themed eating, games, competitions, and entertainment. Bands such as Tom Hall and The Plowboys and Lunch Money soothe the most savage vinefruits with their dulcet tones, and a complimentary tasting table entertains epicureans with samples of heirloom tomatoes. Special skee-ball games allow attendees to hurl commercial tomatoes in a socially acceptable setting, and tomato bobbing puts a tomato-centric twist on America's number-one water-based hobby. Festival judges will settle the Homegrown Tomato Contest by choosing the most appealing tomatoes in six prize categories, including best big red and best unusual tomato. A free screening of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes at 9 p.m. provides an entertaining reminder of the hostility that was once the hallmark of human-tomato relations.
