First Friday

Every month, Downtown Lakeland shuts down the streets for our First Friday events. Thousands of 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 2020:

  • January 3, 2020 – Three Kings Celebration, sponsored by Just Cares Inc.
