First Friday: Back To School

August 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us on August 4 from 6pm to 9pm for our next First Friday event: Back to School. Lakeland Moonwalk will have inflatables, ride & climb games, and competitive games. Bring the kids to celebrate the start of a brand new school year!

Downtown shops and restaurants will be open late. Don’t miss the Makers Market, featuring local artists and creators, on North Kentucky Avenue, Food Trucks on Pine St., and the Classy Car Show on Tennessee Ave. Streets are closed to vehicles, so come prepared to walk about!

First Friday is a family-friendly event held in the streets of Downtown Lakeland between Lemon Street and Oak Street along Kentucky and Tennessee Avenues. 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!

First Friday is supported by our Downtown Champions:
