Columbus battled rain showers again Labor Day weekend as the town brought amusement rides, carnival food, demonstrations and craft vendors to town for a family-friendly celebration. This weekend’s event, which opened Friday, Aug. 30 with rides for kids, was held to make up for a soggy Fabulous Fourth event in downtown Columbus. Fireworks were rescheduled from July 4 and shot off Saturday night. Columbus officials said vendors enjoyed a strong early evening turnout for food and crafts. See more photos on page 7.
