Celebrate the holidays in Downtown Lakeland at the Holiday Walkabouts on December 14 and December 21 from 6pm-9pm.
Stores and shops will be open late serving up yummy goodies (like cider and cookies) and special deals. There will be live music on the street corners and carriage rides loading on Pine Street ($1 per person).
There will be the traditional holiday lights decorating Munn Park and costumed characters patrolling around for spontaneous selfies.

On December 21, visitors can take pictures with Santa at Focus Realty on 218 E. Pine Street. They can also participate in a “Whoville Hair” and “Ugly Sweater Selfie” contest.
