Bring the Family to the 27th Annual Howard Community College Columbia Classic Grand Prix and Support Student Scholarships, September 20

Howard Community College (HCC) will transform Marama Farm in Clarksville, Maryland, into a world-class equestrian competition for the whole family at the 27th annual HCC Columbia Classic Grand Prix on Saturday, September 20, 2014. In a challenging course of obstacles, twists and turns, equestrians jump and soar in a race against the clock—all for a good cause. Proceeds from the event benefit the HCC Educational Foundation, which provides scholarship support for HCC students.  

In addition to the competition, families can enjoy food vendors, a classic car show, and plenty of games. The day’s activities will include pony rides, a pumpkin patch, hay rides, and even a moon bounce.
