     Will Rogers once remarked, "What the thoroughfare of Wall Street will do to you if you don't know a stock, Columbia will do to you if you don't know a mule."

     Attending the Mule Day Parade you may think here are mules as far as the eye can see. Well, you'd be right! With more than a 50-year tradition, the Mule Day parade is normally held the first weekend in April and brings so many mules to one place that Columbia has long boasted the proud title of "Mule Capital of the World."

     In fact, the 1939 parade proudly boasted "1,000 girls on 1,000 mules." You know what? They lived up to the billing!

     In the 1840s mule dealing began in Columbia, with the area quickly developing into a crossroads for mule trading in the United States. The street sales became nationally known and, in 1934, Columbia's "Market Day" on the first Monday in April expanded to a bonafide celebration complete with a parade and special activities.

     In addition to the parade, Mule Day events now include a clogging contest, a barbeque dinner, chuck wagon show, flea market, liar's contest, mule sale, a pancake breakfast, knife sale, old time fiddlers contest and a crafts festival.

     Oh and, by the way, mules come in all sizes and colors, so bring your camera.
