"I don't care how hard it rains, the cornbread still tastes good."
Lee Greene spoke for all those who attended Sunday as the South Carolina Cornbread Festival returned after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rain and unseasonably chilly temperatures added lots of umbrellas and jackets to the festivities, but as Greene said, the food was unaffected (and safely under tents).
The North Columbia Business Association (NCBA) North Main (NOMA) District hosted the event, with the goal of bringing people together for a fun-filled family experience.
The festival included live music, cornhole and bingo games, the Cornbread Alley, the Cornbread Cook-Off, the Cornbread Eating Competition, the Corn Muffin Playland, the Little Miss Muffin Pageant, craft vendors, food trucks, and exhibitors.
