Annual Lakeland Swan Derby - Free Family Event - April 29, 2011
Another great free family event is about to happen on April 29 starting at 5:30 downtown Lakeland that is staged on the beautiful Lake Mirror. The Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine, a vital charity in the Lakeland Community will receive its proceeds from the Lakeland Swan Derby to help the less fortunate with their medical needs.
Just like the well known "Kentucky Derby" with all the famous hats and parade, the annual Lakeland Swan Derby is in essence the same, only this Derby features ten beautifully crafted paddleboats that look like swans. The Jockeys compete in a race with the purity of sports entertainment on Lake Mirror in a hometown setting.
There are total of three races:
Race 1 - Maiden Handicap
Race 2 - Celebrity Dash
Race 3 - The Lakeland Derby
The Lakeland Swan Derby is truly a must attend that is fun filled event with live entertainment and fireworks after the sun sets over beautiful Lake Mirror, as all of the other Lakeland FL Events and Attractions that are on the menu throughout the year.
