Here in Lakeland and across Polk County we have fantastic annual events that happen every spring! Get out your calendar and pencil in the dates for these local favorites including art festivals, SUN ‘n FUN, Swan Derby, Mayfaire, & more.
Check out these U-Pick Strawberry farms in Plant City or within an hour’s drive of Lakeland & Polk County. Strawberry picking is a great family activity since the berries grow in raised beds on the ground and are easy for kids to reach.
Sunflowers bloom in Florida in both spring and fall. Local sunflower farms are open for you to cut your own sunflowers or wander through a sunflower maze. Take a day trip to a sunflower field to get outdoors and enjoy colorful photo opportunities.
