This year, the LDDA has decided to partner with the City of Lakeland’s annual “Red, White & Kaboom” and the Lakeland Food Truck Rally to bring you “Red, White & Blue Snack & Shop” on July 3, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm in Downtown Lakeland. Downtown shops and restaurants will be open late. Enjoy vendors and exhibitors on N. Kentucky Ave. north of the railroad tracks, stretching down to Oak St.

Our special Wednesday, July 3rd event will replace our regularly scheduled July 5th First Friday. Based on feedback from our exhibitors and merchants, we decided to consolidate all the fun and festivities into one night on July 3rd so that everyone can enjoy spending time with their family and friends over the long weekend. Due to the consolidated footprint, we will not be having a Classy Car Show on Tennessee Ave. in July.

Streets are closed to vehicles, so come prepared to walk about! On-street parking begins to close in the event area at 3pm to allow us to clear the streets and set up the exhibitors and vendors. Parking in all permitted and metered locations is free after 5pm and all day on the weekends. Event parking is limited, so please carpool with friends and neighbors!

Parking lots available:
Trinity Presbyterian Parking Lot – corner of Tennessee and Bay
Oak Street Parking Lot – corner of Oak and Kentucky
Main Street garage – all day public access from Cedar Street; after 5pm public parking from Main Street
All City Permit Lots free after 5pm and all day on weekends.
Parking lot north of BB&T Bank along the railroad tracks (access off of S. Florida Ave)
