Kids school is out – are you ready to have some fun? Bring your parents to downtown Lakeland this Friday, June 5th starting at 6:00 PM and participate blowing the largest bubble in a bubble-gum blowing contest. I’m sure there are some great hula-hoopers in Lakeland, there will be a contest for a squirt-gun shootout and a contest for summer themed art, which takes place along Kentucky Avenue.
Teaming up with our local downtown merchants, Explorations V Children’s Museum and the Polk Museum of Art, who are making sure, you will have a great start to your summer vacation during the June 5th First Friday “School’s out for the Summer” Celebration.
More activities are planned for the kids such as a bounce house, face painting at Lofty Ideas and a DJ at Lloyd’s of Lakeland on North Kentucky. Traditions Unlimited will feature making paper flowers and Brooke Pottery will host making ornaments and clay animals.
Teens and Adults – are you dressed for summer? The Polk Museum of Art is sponsoring on South Kentucky Avenue a community art project showcasing your idea of “Summer Fun”. A people’s Choice Award for a cool summer look – you live in Florida only a short drive to the beach. Hmm… flip flops, summer shirt and a cool hat made out of straw perhaps – think Key West or Hawaii, you get the point. Try it and have fun!
Prizes will be provided for various activities by the Downtown Lakeland Partnership and Downtown Lakeland merchants.
Garden Bistro, one of my favorite restaurant, will be open for dinner 6 - 8 P.M. It doesn’t get any better than dinner at the Bistro and music by Sofa Kings 7:00 - 11:00 on the Patio. Garden Bistro is next to Hollis Garden on Lake Mirror.
Of course, there will be entertainment along the streets and the car show on Tennessee Avenue next to Munn Park from 6:00 PM- 9:00 PM.
July’s First Friday Theme “Sundown Celebration”, which will take place July 3rd, 2009
