Looking for a unique birthday idea in Lakeland?
Want to make your son or daughter feel like a Major Leaguer?
Love the idea of a party that doesn’t require you to set up or clean up?
Celebrate your child’s birthday at a Lakeland Flying Tigers Game!
A birthday at a Flying Tigers game is much more than just a day at the ballpark. Your child and his/her friends will get the royal treatment and experience exclusive birthday amenities only available with a party package. Highlights include a group photo on the field, your son or daughter throwing out a ceremonial first pitch, a welcome on the loudspeaker and name up on the videoboard, a visit from Southpaw – the Flying Tigers Mascot, autographs and photos with a Flying Tigers player, and a personal party host to take care of all the party details. It’s the perfect venue for a kids birthday party in Lakeland!
While this post is sponsored by the Lakeland Flying Tigers, we personally LOVE that this birthday opportunity is available to Lakeland area kids and are excited to share the details with you.
Your party guests will enjoy the baseball game, chow down on traditional baseball fare of peanuts, popcorn and hot dogs (or pizza), and get to play in the Kids Zone inflatables. Your son or daughter AND their friends will have a memorable party they’ll be talking about for weeks!
