Lakeland FL - Things To Do in September

With schools back in session and hopefully the summer heat starting to subside there are things to do around Lakeland, Florida. Events for the whole family including the dogs! Some of the special events happening in Lakeland include the Downtown Farmers Curb Market, First Fridays, and the Cardboard Boat Challenge. Of course if you are looking for something Things to do in Lakeland FLto do on a weekly basis there are the numerous High School Football teams which would love support from their community every Friday night. 

On September 1st we will see the Downtown Farmers Curb Market back and now on the streets of downtown Lakeland. The market will be located on North Kentucky Avenue from the railroad tracks to Traders Alley. The Market will be open every Saturday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. to get your weekend off to a great start. This opportunity allows for you to get up and out of the house and start your weekend off with a leisurely walk around Downtown Lakeland. What a great way to support local farmers and get great fresh produce or come purchase beautiful plants for your garden. 

September 7th is the Downtown Lakeland’s Frist Friday “The Dog Days of Summer.” It is our furry friends who are featured during this Friday evening. Complete with costumes, prizes, and a pooch parade. Vendors will be available to talk about great products for the dogs and local animal rescues will be on hand to showcase their pets in need of people to give them a home and some love. Be there to catch some great demonstrations in action including one by the Lakeland Police Departments K-9 unit.

September 15th marks the 9th Annual Cardboard Boat Challenge and Lakes Festival at the Lake Hollingsworth Boat Ramp. The event gets under way at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. There will be something fun for the entire family with exhibitors, vendors, music, and a boat race. The boat race will be unlike any other in that the boaters have built these boats out of cardboard and duct tape and they race around a marked course on Lake Hollingsworth. The anticipation amounts when waiting for the boats to enter the water to see who will accomplish the first goal of floatation and then watch them race around the obstacle course. Cheer on your favorite design from shore or get involved with the race while registration is still open. 

Annual Cardboard Boat Challenge

Teams consist of corporate teams, elementary/middle school age youth, high school age youth, and family teams. Each team must have a minimum of four people with a maximum for ten. Each team will also assign a team Captain. Boats may be built on site with supplies being provided by the event or built a head of time following rules laid out in the documents for the race. Each boat will be manned by two people with oars and no part of those manning the boats may enter the water to assist in powering the boat. Teams are highly encouraged to bring a cheering squad with them to help encourage them on to the finish line.
