Every month, Downtown Lakeland shuts down the streets for our First Friday events. Over 3,000 visitors every month enjoy a Classy Car Show, a Makers Market with crafters and artisans, and over 60 First Friday Exhibitors with goodies, giveaways, and special deals. However, our themes change from month to month, and sometimes we have special sponsors or special activities in Munn Park. See below for the tentative themes for 2019:
- January 4, 2019 – Rock the New Year! – Enjoy rock music, rock hunting, and rock climbing. Non-profits light up the park with information about their organizations, volunteer opportunities, and fun activities.
