Join us on August 5 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.

Head to Downtown Lakeland on the first Friday of every month for First Friday! Downtown shops and restaurants will be open late. Enjoy goodies, giveaways, and discounts from local business exhibitors. Shop in the Makers Market, which features local artists and creators, and check out the Classy Car Show on Main St. Streets are closed 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 Ave. and Main St. 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.
