Downtown Lakeland, The Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce and the Miss Florida Scholarship Competition have teamed up to bring a fun activity to Tasty Tuesday in June.

Miss Florida Scholarship Competition and Miss Florida’s Teen Competition will take place on June 21-24 at Youkey Theater – RP Funding Center. To promote the event and to provide the 50+ delegates the opportunity to meet and mingle with the public, retail and restaurants in Downtown will host the delegates in their businesses during Tasty Tuesday.

• Tasty Tuesday customers will receive a MISS FLORIDA BINGO CARD with each pack of $10 tickets purchased for Tasty Tuesday. (117 N. Kentucky Ave – LDDA office until 7pm)
• The BINGO card will include a map of the delegates’ locations at retail and restaurants.  The BINGO card will include facts about the delegates.  Find the fact about each delegate as you meet them in the locations.
• Turn your completed BINGO card in Munn Park at the Ice Cream Social (8-9pm) for a chance to win prizes.  Must be present to win. Prizes drawn at 8:45pm.


Tasty Tuesdays are a super fun way to experience multiple Downtown restaurants all in one night!  You get hearty sample sizes with each ticket and move from place to place at your own pace! Tastings begin at 4:30pm and end at 9pm.

Enjoy live music in Munn Park from 5:30-8:30pm.
